As The Sopranos celebrates its 20th anniversary, the cast of New Line’s prequel movie titled The Many Saints of Newark is coming together.
Last week we found out that Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga were joining Alessandro Nivola on the cast.

It’s being reported that Michael Gandolfini, James Gandolfini’s son, has been chosen to play the character.
Many Saints Of Newark is the Sopranos prequel movie that many fans of the HBO mob drama have been waiting for. And now it looks like the project just got a lot more exciting with the additions of The Punisher‘s Jon Bernthal and Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga. More on the story here below.

“The Blues Had A Baby And They Named It Rock And Roll” — Muddy Waters
There is a name in music that many have forgotten over the years. This name is responsible for the discovery of some of the greatest musical talents this world has ever known. This name is responsible for the discovery of Rock and Roll itself. That name is Leonard Chess.
Who Do You Love is a biopic about Leonard Chess (Alessandro Nivola), who as a Jewish immigrant in Chicago realized that there was a new sound in music and that no one had jumped on it yet. He first opened up a new nightclub where musicians could play, but it was not long before he and his brother Phil Chess (John Abrahams) along with the help of songwriter Willie Dixon (Chi McBride) decided they needed to record this music and share it with the world.
