The film is set during the Newark riots in the ’60s.
Series creator David Chase co-wrote the script with producer Lawrence Konner. Alan Taylor is directing “The Many Saints of Newark,” while Nicole Lambert and Marcus Viscidi are executive producing.

Adams.
As for Magnussen, he has a busy year ahead with Netflix’s “Velvet Buzzsaw” and Disney’s “Aladdin.” He is repped by WME, BRS/Gage, Anonymous Content, and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
