It seems as if the speculation for a Sopranos movie is starting to get serious. A number of cast members have all stated that a screenplay is in the works! According to Cinemablend, Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco stated, “We’ve all talked to [series creator] David [Chase] to give him a kick in the booty to get [the screenplay] right.” She also clarified the rumors on whether or not James Gandolfini’s the one holding up the process.
“I don’t think it’s that at all…I think it’s really trying to get the right script. Without the right script, it’s really not worth doing.”
The Sopranos is one of those shows with die hard fans. There was a huge debate at the end of the series over the the way it concluded. No one knows exactly what happened, and many were happy to leave it that way. If they do decide to make a film, it will give answers to what it seemed like should be an un-answerable question and in a way do away with the brilliance in the series finale.
Although the film could translate fairly well to the big screen and the series is amazing — the way they left it, should be the way it’s left for all of time. I don’t know WHAT script would justify returning to the story, so it’s no wonder that the script is what’s holding everything up.
What do you think of this? Do you think they should take The Sopranos to the big screen?
