NEW YORK (AP) — Nickelodeon is reuniting four members of the classic mob drama “The Sopranos” for a kids TV movie.
The new film, “Nicky Deuce,” stars Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa. They played gang members Christopher and Bobby. Also starring are Tony Sirico and Vincent Curatola, who played fellow mobster Paulie and rival boss Johnny “Sack.”
It’s the first time they have performed together since “The Sopranos” ended five years ago.
The cast of the new film also includes veteran actress Rita Moreno and Cristine Prosperi of “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
“Nicky Deuce” is based on the children’s book of the same title authored by Schirripa and Charles Fleming.
It’s currently in production in Montreal. It’s set to premiere next year on Nickelodeon, the network said Monday.
