According to TheWrap, Alan Taylor has closed a deal to direct “The Many Saints Of Newark,” a feature film written by David Chase that is a prequel to his iconic TV series, “The Sopranos.”

The film is set in the 60s when riots swept through Newark, NJ and the conflict between African American and Italian residents. Several characters of “The Sopranos” are expected to appear in the film.

Taylor won the 2007 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for “The Sopranos” sixth season episode “Kennedy and Heidi,” and directed episodes of “The Sopranos” in four of the show’s six seasons.
