Variety is reporting that The Punisher’s Jon Bernthal and Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Vera Farmiga have joined the cast of The Sopranos prequel film.

Plot details are vague other than the film being set during the Newark riots in the ’60s. The exact roles of Bernthal and Farmiga have yet to be revealed. More players from The Sopranos mythology are expected to be joining the cast.

Series creator David Chase co-wrote the script with producer Lawrence Konner. Alan Taylor, who has directed several Sopranos episodes, is directing The Many Saints of Newark, while Nicole Lambert and Marcus Viscidi will serve as executive producers.
