The film will look at how racial tensions and violence played out among members of Italian and African American organized crime groups. Though no other plot details were given, the film will reportedly feature some fan favorite characters from HBO's classic drama, The Sopranos.

Chase wrote the screenplay for The Many Saints of Newark with longtime Sopranos scribe, Lawrence Konner. The search for a director is underway and no casting decisions have been announced, nor has an official timetable for the film's release.

The Sopranos premiered on HBO in 1999 and ran for six critically-acclaimed seasons, winning a pair of Peabody Awards, 21 Emmys and five Golden Globes. Following the show's end, Chase turned to filmmaking, releasing his directorial debut, Not Fade Away, in 2012.
