First-time feature film director David Chase turned to his The Sopranos cast member Steven Van Zandt to help compile the soundtrack to his ’60s rock ‘n roll movie, Not Fade Away. The Sopranos creator and Van Zandt came up with classic tunes from The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, James Brown, and The Rascals to fill out the soundtrack to Chase’s rookie film.
Not Fade Away will open in theaters on December 21, 2012 and stars John Magaro, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, and James Gandolfini.
Says Van Zandt: “David Chase realizes that in film, like Bruce Springsteen in music, the more detailed, accurate, and nuanced the personal vision, the more compelling the work ends up being. Helping David realize his vision was one of the most satisfying projects of my life. Watching these young actors meet every challenge we threw at them was also quite inspiring.”
Chase added, “Music is obviously the soul of this film. And working on the music, especially with Steven, was certainly the favorite part. John Magaro and Jack Huston sing on these tracks and they really stand up.”
In 1964, the Rolling Stones appear on television and three best friends from the suburbs of New Jersey decide to form a rock band.
