To better prepare for his role as young Tony Soprano in the upcoming Sopranos prequel movie Newark, Michael Gandolfini went back to the place where it all ended: the iconic booth at the Bloomfield, New Jersey, diner Holsten's that was the setting for The Sopranos' enigmatic final scene. Both are producing the film as well with Alan Taylor as the director.

The photo of Michael Gandolfini was shared by Holsten's Facebook page, which was captioned, 'Wow look who stopped by, it's Michael Gandolfini, James Gandolfini's son'.

The late James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano in The Sopranos in 1999. His legend hangs large as a pivotal member, along with Tony and Uncle Junior, as someone who transformed the family into one to be reckoned with in the Tri-State area.

The Many Saints of Newark will be set in the 1960s, during the Newark Riots, when African-American and Italian-American gangs waged war in the streets.

The cast will include Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, Ray Liotta, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen and John Magaro. It ran for six seasons before ending in 2007.

"The Sopranos" ultimately ran six seasons and won 21 Primetime Emmys, five Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award en route to world-renowned status, thus the prequel will likely be a box-office hit when it's released nationwide on September 25, 2020.

The creator of "The Sopranos", David Chase, and Lawrence Konner are the prequel's screenwriters.
