Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga are in final negotiations to join the cast of the prequel to “The Sopranos,” with the working title “The Many Saints of Newark,” an individual with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap. Bernthal and Farmiga join the cast opposite Alessandro Nivola, who is playing Dickie Moltisanti in the feature film. Both Bernthal and Farmiga’s character details are under wraps. “The Many Saints of Newark” is set in the era of the Newark riots in the 1960s, when the African-Americans and the Italians of Newark were at each other’s throats, and when among the gangsters of each group, it became especially lethal. While other plot details are vague, the film is expected to include appearances from several key characters from “The Sopranos.” Also Read: Jon Bernthal Rips Alt-Right 'Punisher' Fans: 'F-- Them' “The Sopranos” series creator David Chase co-wrote the script with Lawrence Konner.

It doesn’t seem too early to bestow that praise upon Bates Motel, which begins its fifth and final season on A&E Monday night. The show, an imagining of the events that led up to Alfred Hitchcock’s landmark 1960 scary movie Psycho, has become its own distinctive creation. Developed by producers Carlton Cuse and (especially) Kerry Ehrin, and starring Freddie Highmore as troubled youth Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his domineering mother, Norma, Bates Motel is at once faithful to the Psycho mythos first conceived by novelist Robert Bloch, and a bold re-conceiving of what Bloch and Hitchcock wrought.
It’s like Norma Bates never died. Backed by the Ink Spots’ “We’ll Meet Again,” the preview opens with Norman (Freddie Highmore) happily preparing for the day — including his job as manager of the Bates Motel — and then hitting the kitchen for a delicious homemade breakfast, made by a smiling, very much alive Norma (Vera Farmiga), who greets him holding a plate of biscuits. “You ever have the feeling that you’ve had the same nightmare over and over again and that you can’t remember it… just remember the feeling of it?” Norman asks in a voice-over, as the harsh reality of his unreality becomes clear.
It’s near the end of October, so we’ve put down our pumpkin-flavored snacks and drinks to share some of the best Halloween movies you can stream at home. Earlier, we shared films that are good for the whole family. Then we shared some flicks that are a little scarier but not too intense. This week, we’re going all in. Here are three Halloween movies that aren’t for the faint of heart that you can stream right now. The Conjuring
She sure looked pretty lifeless as her weeping husband, Alex Romero, held her in his arms, but in a TV season that has seen lots of fakeouts with major character deaths (yeah, we’re looking at you, J. Snow), we would not bet our primetime dollars on seeing Norma Bates’s obit in the White Pine Bay newspaper. Of course, Bates star Freddie Highmore and showrunners Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse have all the answers, and they’re sharing some of them with Yahoo TV. Read on for scoop about Romero’s continuing legal woes, the return of Chick, the shockingly “fun” season finale, and another confirmation that Season 5 will indeed be the last one we spend with the Bates family.
Special Correspondents, a Netflix Original production that starts streaming on Friday, stars Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana as New York City news-radio employees assigned to cover a revolution in Ecuador, which strains credulity right from the start. Gervais, who wrote and directed, plays radio engineer Ian Finch, whom we’re supposed to think is—well, I’ll quote the description of him provided by Bana’s character—“an ugly runt mongrel dog that no one wants.” Certainly Ian’s wife, played by Bates Motel’s Vera Farmiga, who’s portrayed as a cold meanie, doesn’t want Ian. Bana’s Frank Bonneville, on the other hand, is a handsome fellow who gets by on faking his dashing bravado.
Ed and Lorraine Warren, the real-life paranormal investigators portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in The Conjuring, claimed they had taken on more than 10,000 cases over the course of their illustrious (and creepy) career. “I knew that when I signed on for the first one — both Vera and I talked and said, ‘You know, this could be something that we could do for a while, just because of the way that it’s structured,” Wilson told Yahoo Movies from the Encino, Calif. set of The Conjuring 2 (watch above).
Treating the 1976 Richard Donner-director horror film The Omen as a sacred text to be more fully explored in a weekly TV series is the first problem with Damien, premiering Monday night on A&E. The Gregory Peck-Lee Remick melodrama rode the Exorcist wave of A-level casting with a B-movie plot, as well as continuing the then-popular trend of believing audiences could still be shocked by invoking Satan in a religious context. This is made clear in Monday night’s fourth-season premiere of Bates, in an episode written by its key producers, Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse.
If acting didn’t pan out, Taissa Farmiga might have been an accountant. It all started when her famous sister Vera (Oscar nominated for 2009’s Up in the Air) pulled Taissa, reluctantly, onto a film set. “I was thrown into this world,” Taissa told Yahoo Movies with a laugh during a recent phone call, recalling her first film role in the 2011 drama Higher Ground, where she played the teenage version of Vera’s character.
