The Many Saints of Newark is one of the most anticipated films in recent times. The Sopranos wrecked havoc when it first came out, and quickly became of the most loved American shows in history, which stands true to this day.

While fans loved James Gandolfini’s tremendous performance as Tony Sopranos as a “waste management consultant,” they expect the same level of perfection from the upcoming David Chase flick. Along with Tony’s loosely-controlled temper and hilarious quips, Carmella Soprano (Edie Falco) was an integral part of the show as well, bringing calmness and serenity to the scene (or sometimes being the storm herself).

David Chase’s The Many Saints of Newark also featured Edie Falco for a scene. However, director Alan Taylor revealed to NME that the scene ended up being excluded from the theatrical cut because it was just “a great excuse to see her again.”

It wound up not being in the final movie but it was a great excuse to see her again. She’s so ridiculously talented and she’s also one of these people who – and it seems to frequently be women – that manage to be perfect actors and also the sanest people you’ve ever met in your life.

Taylor also revealed that there were many ideas about how to kickoff the movie, and it was one of them. The film is slated for an October 1st release. It will feature James Gandolfini’s son, Michael Gandolfini as Tony Soprano. Check out the film’s trailer below.
