"...'Dickie Moltisanti'(Alessandro Nivola), the father of 'Christopher' and a 'mob soldier' who died in the 1970's at the hands of a crooked cop, will provide an entry point into a look at the Soprano mob's origins in the turbulence of racial tensions between African Americans and Italian Americans in Newark, NJ..."

"I was interested in Newark and life in Newark at that time", said Chase. "I used to go to down there every Saturday night for dinner with my grandparents. But the thing that interested me most was Tony's boyhood. I was interested in exploring that. 

"The movie will deal with the tensions between the blacks and Italians at the time and 'Tony Soprano' will be part of this, but as a kid.

Zack Snyder's "The Stone Quarry"

Posted: 08 Jan 2019 10:33 AM PST

Director Zack Snyder ("Watchmen") has confirmed his new production company is called "The Stone Quarry", as he continues developing his next feature film project "The Fountainhead", adapting author Ayn Rand's 1943 dramatic romance novel:

"...'Howard Roark', is an architect who designs modernist buildings...

"...refusing to compromise with an architectural establishment unwilling to accept innovation. 

"His struggle reflects a belief that individualism is superior to collectivism.

"Roark is opposed by 'second-handers', who value conformity over independence and integrity, including Roark's former classmate 'Peter Keating', who succeeds by following popular styles, but turns to Roark for help with his own design problems.

"'Ellsworth Toohey', a socialist architecture critic who uses his influence to promote his political and social agenda, tries to destroy Roark's career. Tabloid newspaper publisher 'Gail Wynand' seeks to shape popular opinion, befriending Roark, then betrays him when public opinion turns in a direction he cannot control.

"The most controversial character is Roark's lover, 'Dominique Francon'. She believes that non-conformity has no chance of winning, so she alternates between helping Roark and working to undermine him..."

"The Fountainhead" novel has been adapted into other media including an illustrated version syndicated in daily newspapers (1945)...

...plus a Warners feature (1949), starring Gary Cooper with a screenplay adapted by Rand.
