We haven’t heard much from David Chase since Tony Soprano’s life cut to black over the strains of “Don’t Stop Believin’.” But he’s been working.
The Sopranos creator has completed a film called Not Fade Away. Set in 1964 in New Jersey (where else?), the movie follows three Italian-American friends who form a rock band.
I know, I know. The Jersey Boys has already been done.
The difference is that these guys have a Springsteen-esque vibe. In fact, Steve Van Zandt produced the soundtrack, so expect a lot of Underground Garage-type stuff. And yes, James Gandolfini is in the film.
The premiere of Not Fade Away is coming up at the New York Film Festival in September.
