Nivola To Star In “Sopranos” Prequel

I’m so happy for my old pal Sandro. To wit: Actor Alessandro Nivola (Face/Off, American Hustle) is in talks to play Dickey Moltisanti in The Sopranos prequel movie for New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Alan Taylor is set to direct The Many Saints of Newark, which returns David Chase to the world of The Sopranos for the feature prequel, which he co-wrote with Lawrence Konner. Nivola, who also stars in Sebastian Lelio’s Disobedience opposite Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdam, will play Moltisanti, a charismatic but violent made man who falls in love with his father’s much younger bride, a recent immigrant from Italy.
