As for the rest of the cast, Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen, and John Magaro will all star.
"The movie will deal with the tensions between the blacks and whites at the time, and Tony Soprano will be part of this, but as a kid", said David Chase (writer) in a previous interview.
The cast for "Newark" includes Alesandro Nivola, who plays Dickie Moltisanti - a character often talked about but never seen in "The Sopranos" television series as he was Christopher Moltisanti's father and a mentor to Tony Soprano. Though the original series often employed flashbacks to this particular era in Newark history, it's unknown if any of the actors who portrayed younger versions of Soprano wiseguys will be reprising their roles for the film.
There is no word yet on when production may begin on The Many Saints of Newark.
