The “Saints” are not yet marching in.
After being postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, the long-awaited “The Many Saints of Newark” is finally expected to open on September 24, 2021 – almost a year after the originally scheduled release date.
“The Sopranos” prequel, produced by New Line Cinemas and released by Warner Bros., was originally scheduled to hit theaters and streaming services in September 2020, Variety reported.
The David Chase-created mafia movie was later remade this spring due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The young Tony Soprano is aptly portrayed by Michael Gandolfini, the like-minded son of the late James Gandolfini, who played the adult soprano in the iconic HBO series. The 21-year-old actor revealed last year that he never even saw his father’s legendary show before he was cast in the prequel.
The star-studded cast also includes Leslie Odom Jr. of “Hamilton” fame, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Alessandro Nivola, Billy Magnussen, John Magaro, Michela De Rossi, Ray Liotta and Vera Farmiga.
“The Many Saints of Newark” is coming to theaters and the HBO Max streaming service at the same time.
