David Chase has signed a deal with Paramount Pictures to write, direct and produce his first feature film for the studio.
If case you’ve forgotten, Chase is the creator of The Sopranos and SOB (depending on your point of view) behind the series’ abrupt closing scene.
No information about Chase’s new project has been revealed other than it will be a “drama.” The Sopranos is technically a drama… we can dream, right? Wrong. This will definitely be an all-new tale.
“David is one of the great storytellers of our time, and his debut as a filmmaker is both highly anticipated and long overdue,” said Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “In truth, David has been creating cinematic-quality filmed drama for more than a decade ” spanning nine seasons and 86 episodes of “The Sopranos.” Having worked with David as a producer, I’m delighted to be with him again and to bring his unique vision to the big screen.”
