Filming On New Sopranos Movie Begins In Newark

Cast and crew of the prequel to “The Sopranos” have gathered in Newark for the filming of the new movie.

“The Many Saints of Newark” is set in 1967 during the Newark riots.

“Two years ago we studied the rebellion of 1967 in Newark so it’s really interesting for us to see this being recreated,” one person told WOR’s Alice Stockton-Rossini.

The streets have been created to look like they were more than 50 years ago.But that’s also causing complaints among some.

“There’s a lot of streets that are blocked off so it’s hard for you to find somewhere to park,” one driver complained.
