It's been years since the idea of a Sopranos movie joined the pop culture conversation, but the dream is finally becoming a reality as the prequel The Many Saints of Newark is underway.

The film — set during the '60s — follows the riots that took place in Newark, New Jersey during that time. It also follows the early years of everyone's favorite mob boss Tony Soprano, who will be played by the late actor James Gandolfini's son Michael.

Co-written by the HBO show's creator David Chase and executive producer Lawrence Konner, The Many Saints of Newark is employing a large cast of high-profile stars. Alan Taylor is set to direct the project (which is currently in production), but the roles some of the stars are taking on remain a secret.
