Gandolfini, Chase reconnect at ‘Twylight’

'Sopranos' alums reunite for coming-of-age drama

James Gandolfini is re-teaming with “Sopranos” cohorts David Chase and Steven Van Zandt in Paramount’s coming-of-age drama “The Twylight Zones.”

Gandolfini’s on board to portray the father of a teen in a rock band, set in 1960s suburbia. John Magaro will play his son.

Paramount had announced in October that Magaro, Jack Huston and Will Brill would star following a nationwide talent search and that Van Zandt would produce and supervise the music as well as serving as an exec producer.

Chase is producing and directing from his own script in his feature directorial debut. Mark Johnson (“Rain Man,” “The Chronicles of Narnia”) is also producing.

Paramount Vantage will release “The Twylight Zones.”

Chase, creator of “The Sopranos,” signed on in 2008 to write, direct and produce the feature. Chase has a longstanding relationship with Paramount chairman Brad Grey, who was an exec producer on “The Sopranos.”

Gandolofini was last seen in “Welcome to the Rileys.” He’s also signed for a role in Warner’s post 9/11 drama “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.”

Gandolfini’s repped by CAA.
