The drama series which played for six seasons and showed the era of gritty ended ambiguously leaving the viewers wondering whether Tony Soprano was dead or alive.

The film will take place in the 1960s and involve the Newark, New Jersey riots, events which involved looting, property damage and multiple deaths.

"David is a masterful storyteller and we, along with our colleagues at HBO, are thrilled that he has chose to revisit, and enlarge, the Soprano universe in a feature film", said Warner Bros Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich in an interview with Deadline. Chase, who created the HBO series, wrote the screenplay with fellow Sopranos writer Lawrence Konner. Chase will also serve as a producer and will be involved in finding a director for the picture.

Star James Gandolfini - who played troubled mob boss Tony Soprano - died of a heart attack in 2013. The timing also indicates the movie will more than likely focus on Tony's mobster father, Giovanni "Johnny Boy" Soprano, played by Joseph Siravo in flashback during the series run. Edie Falco, Steven Van Zandt, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Lorraine Bracco, Michael Imperioli, Dominic Chianese, Steve Schirripa, and Tony Sirico also starred in the show.
