Ray Liotta to star in Sopranos Prequel?!
Ray Liotta could be back in the Mob starring in the new Many Saints of Newark movie.
Apparently the deal is looking good.
When it comes to great Mob shows Ray last starred as Henry Hill in Scorsese's Goodfellas, and if he officially signs on to the project he'll be joining a stacked cast including Michael Gandolfini who will play a young Tony Soprano! (played previously by his late Father James Gandolfini)
The preqel is written by Sopranos creator David Chase and Lawrence Konner.
The Many Saints of Newark is set during the Newark riots of the 60's where fighting between Italian and African Americans became heated after the Mob got involved.
