'Sopranos' Creator Sets Up Next Directing Effort 'Little Black Dress'

Though the feature directorial debut of "The Sopranos" director David Chase, the coming-of-age rock and roll drama Not Fade Away, went largely unnoticed, that's not stopping him from moving on to his sophomore effort. Deadline has word that Paramount Pictures has picked up a spec script from Chase that will be the next film he directs. Little Black Dress will follow a female war veteran in her 20s who comes back from Afghanistan, struggling with a disability. With a new post-war job, she finds herself involved in a potentially lethal investigation alongside a superstitious NYPD detective who just might help her recover.
It sounds like we're on the verge of seeing another round of films about recent war veterans, much like the influx of films surrounding the aftermath of the Iraq War years ago. DreamWorks is working on Thank You for Your Service and Tom Hardy has Samarkland in development as well. This doesn't sound like the kind of spec script that a studio picks up, especially without a best-selling book as source material, but this is David Chase, a man who has proven himself as a writer plenty of times before. We're just hoping this new round of war veteran films doesn't get as exhausting as the last one. Thoughts?
