The Sopranos prequel movie is starting to take shape.
Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga are the latest additions to the cast of The Many Saints of Newark, reports Variety.
The movie will be skipping HBO entirely and will instead release in theaters.
No details have been revealed about who Bernthal and Farmiga will be playing. They join a cast that already includes Alessandro Nivola.
It's not uncommon for details to be scarce, especially when the project is likely still a long time away from releasing.
The movie will take place in the 1960s, and will feature the Newark riots.
It's unclear which characters from the series will show up, but it would be difficult to imagine a young Tony Soprano not stopping by for part of the action.
Thankfully, The Sopranos creator, David Chase, has been part of the creative process and co-wrote the script with Lawrence Konner.
Far too often, prequels and sequels have little to no input from the original creative forces, so it's comforting to know that the movie is in good hands.
More casting details are expected to be announced in the coming months as the project gears up for production.
Bernthal (The Walking Dead) will next be seen on Netflix's The Punisher Season 2, which launches globally on January 18.
Despite it not being confirmed, it will likely be the final season of the comic-book drama. Netflix has canceled Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil in recent months after a breakdown in the relationship between Disney and the streamer.
As for Farmiga (Bates Motel), her next big-screen outing will be in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. In addition, she is currently shooting the Netflix series, Central Park Five.
