It’s not exactly a sequel – or even a prequel – but Nicky Deuce is a project that’s managed to reunite The Sopranos cast. The Sopranos’ Steve Schirripa, Michael Imperioli, Vincent Curatola and Tony Siricoit will be joining iCarly‘s Noah Munck and Rita Moreno for the Nickelodeon original kids movie.
Schirripa (‘Bobby Baccalieri’ on The Sopranos) and Charles Fleming adapted their childrens’ book for the small screen, with filming currently underway in Montreal. Nickelodeon’s aiming for a 2013 premiere.
Nicky Deuce is a comedic coming-of-age story that is uniquely Nickelodeon,” said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon Group. “Kids will love seeing Noah Munck in this new light – as culture-shocked Nicky who goes from mathlete to unlikely urban legend on the streets of Bensonhurst. Steve Schirripa not only wrote the book the movie is based on, but plays Uncle Frankie and brought in a bunch of his former Sopranos castmates to add a level of authenticity and fun to the movie.”
Nicky Deuce is an incredible production with top-notch talent in front of and behind the camera, and we are proud to be in business with such esteemed partners as Nickelodeon and YTV,” stated Fernando Szew, CEO, MarVista Entertainment. “Noah Munck, The Sopranos cast members and the incredible Rita Moreno are all bringing a ton of spirit and talent to this project, and it’s as much of a joy to produce as it will be to watch.”
The Plot:
Munck stars in Nicky Deuce as Nicholas Borelli II, a nerdy, over-protected teen who transforms into the title character. Nicholas gets caught in the adventure of a lifetime when his plans to attend math camp go awry and he is sent to spend the summer with an uncle (played by Schirripa) he never knew he had in Brooklyn, NY. A fish out of water at first, Nicholas leans on local kids to help him fit in and winds up mistakenly earning a reputation as a tough guy. When confronted with some questionable dealings, Nicky uncovers family secrets and learns that the mean streets of Brooklyn aren’t always what they seem.
