Sopranos Creator Set to Direct 60s Rock 'n Roll Feature Film

This sounds like it could be interesting. Sopranos creator David Chase (seen above) has a new film project he's working on following the conclusion of The Sopranos a few years ago. Deadline is reporting that Chase is currently developing an untitled drama that is a "music-driven coming-of-age saga for Paramount about a bunch of guys who form a rock band in the 1960s." Sounds like it will be fictional, so don't expect a biopic about any real 60's rock band. Chase has set a late summer/early fall start date and also wrote the script for it. This is his top priority and it's definitely next for him, not a Sopranos revival or anything related to that.

Deadline doesn't have much else to add about the project at the moment. Chase is also working on an HBO mini-series called A Ribbon of Dreams that he will apparently start once he finishes the rock 'n roll film. The project was first brought to Paramount back in 2008 and is being developed in their Paramount Vantage indie division. The studio actually shut down Vantage a few years ago, but Deadline says they kept the name in order to slap it on to projects that are "closer to the indie spirit and budget of past Vantage fare like Babel and There Will Be Blood." I'm interested and will be curious to hear more about Chase's film as it develops.

Nice. I think it would be cool if it was a biopic. But that's just me. Hope it's something like Cadillac Records.

David Chase's new rock band script: Act 1, Scene 1: "Hey, I wrote a song; I want yiz all to learn how to play it." "O.K. Hey, this is written in 'E'. How 'bout we try it in 'C'?" "Why you breakin' my balls?"
