The Sopranos creator David Chase has signed a deal with Paramount to write, direct, and produce his first feature film, an original drama. Chase has a long-standing relationship with Paramount chairman Brad Grey, his producing partner on The Sopranos. ”Brad has always been adventurous as a producer and looked for different ways of doing things,” Chase said via a statement. ”I look forward to once again working with him, and now his team. For years, Brad has been a great partner, who helped enable me to do what I need to creatively.” Chase earned nine Emmy nominations for writing and producing The Sopranos, winning four. He received a DGA Award for directing the pilot of Sopranos, and he also directed the series finale.
