Starring Michael Gandolfini, the son of James Gandolfini, 'The Many Saints of Newark' is set during the summer of 1967, with the characters we know from 'The Sopranos' making appearances as their much younger selves.
Joining Gandolfini in the prequel will be Vera Farmiga as Livia Soprano, Tony''s mother; Jon Bernthal as 'Johnny Boy' Soprano, Tony's father; with Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen, Lesli Margherita and Allesandro Nivola.
