From Mafia don to mayor.

A Sopranos movie is still the stuff of rumors, but fans of James Gandolfini will be seeing him in theaters soon enough.

Variety reports that Gandolfini has joined the cast of Tony Scott‘s The Taking of Pelham One Two Three remake, signing on to play the mayor of New York City. For those unfamiliar with the story, Gandolfini’s character has to deal with a major PR headache when a crew of criminals (led by John Travolta) hijacks a subway car. Denzel Washington will star as one of the police officers tasked with saving the day.

Pelham joins a growing list of projects for Gandolfini, who also provides the voice of one of the Wild Things in Spike Jonze‘s upcoming Where the Wild Things Are; according to Variety, Gandolfini will be “producing an untitled drama that casts him as author Ernest Hemingway for director Philip Kaufman.”

The article also says Gandolfini will be returning to the network that signed his checks during the Sopranos‘ run; his production deal with HBO will be bearing fruit in the form of ABCD Camp, a film starring Gandolfini as Sonny Vaccaro, “the godfather of grassroots basketball whose camp launched the careers of dozens of NBA superstars.”
