It seems like poor David Chase, who’s done all kinds of other non-“Sopranos” things, can’t step out the door without someone yelling at him about his beloved, long-completed mobster series.
Nevermind the fact that it’s been seven years since the show’s finale aired on HBO, and that James Gandolfini, who starred as Tony Soprano, passed away in 2013, fans still want more, more, more.
At a panel at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image, Chase was reportedly asked about, shockingly, whether he would make a “Sopranos” movie. According to The Daily Beast, Chase is a little gun-shy about the prospect.
“A lot of people have talked to me about it, and frankly I still flirt with the idea sometimes,” he said. “But if I had a really great way to do it, I would do maybe a prequel. Somebody gave me a book about Newark in the 1920s about gangsters in Newark. That kind of interests me but not enough that I would have done it.”
So, um, that’s something. Not much, but something. As the infuriating final scene of “The Sopranos” would advise, hey, don’t stop believing.
Additionally, you may continue believin’, as well as theorizing about whether the fact that Tony and Co. ate onion rings at the diner really meant something, as fans at the panel reportedly did.
