Movie Preview: The “Sopranos” prequel is in the can — “The Many Saints of Newark”

A season’s worth of characters and plotlines in a 100 minute movie does nobody and nothing justice. Watch “Not Fade Away” to see what I mean

But Farmiga as Mama, Bernthal and Nivola and Ray Liotta? And a co writer to make it a “movie” script?

It could work. Provided Michael Gandolfini doesn’t stink up the joint.

Oct. 1, the “Downton Abbey” of mob series gets a movie.
