The Sopranos creator David Chase has quashed rumors he is planning a blockbuster movie version of the smash hit series.
The mob drama bowed out in style this year after six and a half seasons, and because there was no explosive finale, expectant fans have speculated a big-screen adaptation is on its way.
In the new issue of GQ magazine, Chase offers a glimmer of hope to fans that the show isn’t dead forever, but he warns devotees not to expect a Sopranos movie.
Chase tells the magazine, “There is no thought about making a movie now and I would say chances are we probably will not do it. But at the same time, I’m a writer, and this is how my mind works: I could wake up some morning or (Sopranos star) James Gandolfini could wake up some morning and say, ‘How ’bout it?’
“If it was great enough we might be tempted to do it, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think everybody’s got their own life now. I think everybody’s moved on, including me.”
