'Sopranos' creator to direct coming-of-age film

"Sopranos" creator David Chase has unveiled the nature of the feature film he's written and will direct for Paramount Pictures.

Nearly two years ago, after his award-winning HBO series had run its course, Chase signed to write, direct and produce a drama for the studio. That directorial debut will be a music-driven coming-of-age story set in the 1960s.

The untitled film will be released under the Paramount Vantage banner.

Mark Johnson ("Rain Man," "The Chronicles of Narnia") will produce with the UTA-repped Chase, who also has been a writer-producer on the series "Northern Exposure," "Almost Grown" and "The Rockford Files."
