The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 01/15/19 10:40 PM

I'm surprised no one else has made a thread about this or posts news. Figured I'd make one for all official news.

Several casting announcements today:

https://variety.com/2019/film/news/jon-bernthal-vera-farmiga-sopranos-preque-new-line-1203102889/

Actors Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga were announced this morning. And:

https://variety.com/2019/film/news/sopranos-movie-corey-stoll-billy-magnussen-1203108158/

Corey Stoll and Billy Magnussen this afternoon.

No word yet on who they are playing but there is speculation in the internet that Farmiga and Bernthal may be playing Tony's parents.

Just throwing this out there: Corey Stoll as Uncle Junior? Only because he's bald. I could see Billy Magnussen, based on his looks, as a young Paulie. But who knows at this point.

The only confirmed character cast is Alessandro Nivola as Dickie Moltisante, presumably the title character. Moltisante is Many Saints in Italian.

Is it me or does John Bernthal a dead ringer for a Sonny Franzese?

How is he in The Deuce?

I hope they know what they are doing and aren't casting him out of sentiment, or nepotism.

So they are going to fit all of this into one movie? I thought the story was going to take place when Tony was just a little kid. Gandolfini's kid is 19 so we're getting into the territory of where he was probably starting to get involved.I know they said that Tony killed Willie Overall at 24 and he (with Sil, Jackie Sr) robbed Feech's cardgame prior to that......I'm all for seeing anything we can get in the Sopranos Universe and trust Chase, but I hope they aren't spreading this thing a little too thin.

I just heard about this today and I'm really anxious to see it. Gandolfini's son in the role will be very touching. Do you guys know if this will be an HBO movie or a theater movie?

It's a theater release. Probably not till late 2019/20 at this point since they are still casting roles.

Then we all still stand a chance of getting cast.

Come on PEOPLE!

One of us should get in on this.

They haven't started filming yet.

Let me re phrase my comment. MG's role in the Deuce is similar to AJ's role in the Sopranos. It's only a role.

His kid has grown into a very handsome man. Gandolfini would be proud.

Definitely 2020 at the earliest. Would love to see it ASAP but I also would like them to take as much time as they need to ensure that it reaches its fullest potential

I thought the same. I’ve seen pictures of him when he was a kid and he definitely grew up and lost some weight too. Good for him.

Ray Liotta has joined the cast. Interesting for two reasons: he's yet another actor from "Goodfellas" to have also appeared in the Sopranos universe, and also he was the first choice to play Tony Soprano. Wonder who he will play. Someone prominent, like the boss Old man Dimeo? Maybe the boss before that considering his age. Liotta is 65 now, and Dimeo was said to be 74 in 1999 and this takes place in 1967.

Liotta's playing someone based on Sam The Plumber. His age is just right.

I hope Liotta's playing a young Murf Lupo.

Hopefully he'll keep Jr away from the loose change in his coat this time. Haha.

I like when he was trying to sneak out and Junior caught him. It's too bad we didn't see more of old Murf.

https://www.indiewire.com/2019/03/sopranos-prequel-movie-newark-release-date-1202051218/

Release date has been announced: September 25, 2020. And it has been re-titled to just "Newark."

Interestingly, if you look at the cast list on imdb, there are three new actors that I haven't seen announced in the news: Scotty Gelt, Chris LaPanta, and John Magaro. Magaro played Loco Lorna's "second" husband in "Orange is the New Black. He's in his mid 30s but could pass for mid to late 20s, which is about how old Paulie Walnuts would have been in 1967. We shall see.

Moltisanti means Many Saints, doesn't it? Since they dropped that part of the title I wonder if they changed the script.

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/16/19 08:51 PM

Most of the stories I seen said it started out as "Newark" and then was changed to "Many Saints of Newark"

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/16/19 08:59 PM

I kind of prefer "Many Saints.." TBH. Surely they can think of something better than "Newark"?
Posted By: OakAsFan

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/17/19 07:03 AM

David Chase is obviously big on music. I'm guessing we'll see a lot of young Hesh, who's based on Morris Levy. This would be Hesh in the head cracking days.

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/17/19 12:51 PM

Hesh barely got a word in edgewise on that reunion thing they did.
Posted By: OakAsFan

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/17/19 04:49 PM

Jerry Adler (Hesh) just turned 90. It's tough to get words in edgewise at that age. Especially with shitfaced Lorraine Bracco on stage.

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/18/19 07:50 PM

Does anyone else think this film would act as a backdoor pilot for a TV series if it does well?

Also, I really hope they don't recast Johnny Boy. Joseph Siravo was perfect. A perfect 1960s hood who actually did look like Victor Mature (as his mistress Fran said).
Posted By: Goldy

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 03/19/19 02:47 AM

He was great as Tony's Dad, but he's probably too old to play that role again in the timeframe they're doing in this flick. Siravo is in his 60's now.....maybe around the same age as Johnny Boy was when he passed in the show. He should have been on the show more, he was good. Wonder who John Bernthal is going to play. He's got a good throwback tough guy look. Looks like Sonny Franzese.

Bernthal is likely to play Johnny Boy. Livia Soprano will be played by Vera Farmiga.

I may need to watch it again but I didn't think much of Johnny Soprano in the Sopranos. The actor's portrayal seemed kind of cartoony and at odds with what was generally a very well-acted show.

It was like a performance you would see in a made-for-TV movie about the mob.

He was good there above, and also, in a much more understated version of the character (portraying Johnny Boy as he was toward the end of his life, sickly and burnt out) starts at 4:05:

New images: Michael Gandolfini as teenager Tony, Jon Bernthal as (possibly) younger Paulie and David Chase on set.

Also: web rumor has it that the movie will take place over a course of few years: starting in 1968 and ending in 1974 (the year of Dickie’s death). We’ll definitely find out who really killed Dickie...

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 04/10/19 11:34 PM

He looks the part of young Tony anyway. Hopefully he brings the same acting chops.
Posted By: edimeo25

Re: The Official "The Many Saints of Newark" Thread - 04/10/19 11:35 PM

You beat me to it!

Bernthal's a bit too old for Paulie, who'd be in his mid-20s in 1967, going by Tony Sirico's age. The consensus on the web is he's playing Johnny Boy.

I've got John Magaro pegged as Paulie:

Funny enough, here's Magaro and James Gandolfini together in David Chase's other film, "Not Fade Away." Imagine Paulie with that hair!

That's a wrap! 15 long months to go. Hope they stick with that "Sopranos" inspired logo!
