The Many Saints of Newark
Okay Sopranos fans. This is the movie you’ve been waiting for. While things don’t pick up exactly where they left off. (Which simply is not possible given the passing of James Gandolfini). We instead get a prequel, showing the formative days of how Tony Soprano and his crew rose through the ranks of the New Jersey mob scene. Written by series creator David Chase the film also stars Gandolfini’s real life son Michael Gandolfini and the original Goodfella himself Ray Liotta.
With Venom being a runaway hit for Sony Pictures, you knew a sequel would not be far behind. Little is known about the sequel, save that it is currently being directed by Andy Serkis and the leading cast will all be returning, so Tom Hardy will once again be Eddie Brock/Venom and Michelle Williams as Ann Weying. Given the post-credits scene which featured Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady aka Carnage, as well as Harrelson’s inclusion in the sequel, we can safely assume Carnage will have prominent role in the story. There are so many great ways this could play out. Let’s hope they do it justice.
