Okay, so David Chase, just like his ending for the “Sopranos” series finale, left the option of doing a Sopranos movie wide open. In an interview with the Star-Ledger of Newark, his first and only interview since the Sopranos finale pissed off just about everyone who saw it (heck, I dropped off the show about 4 years ago, and even I was a little pissed), show creator/writer/director David Chase didn’t say he wouldn’t do a Sopranos movie to tie up all the loose ends, but he did say he didn’t see himself doing one. Sort of.
Okay, here’s what he really said:
“I don’t think about (a movie) much,” he told the paper. “I never say never. An idea could pop into my head where I would go, ‘Wow, that would make a great movie,’ but I doubt it.
“I’m not being coy,” he added. “If something appeared that really made a good ‘Sopranos’ movie and you could invest in it and everybody else wanted to do it, I would do it. But I think we’ve kind of said it and done it.”
Translation: “Drive a brink truck up to my house and we’ll talk.”
So will Tony Soprano and crew ever visit the big screen? Will we ever see the Bada Bing in all its big screen glory? And will someone please shave off A.J.’s facial hair? It’s so damn unsightly…
