Nickelodeon is reuniting four members of the classic mob drama The Sopranos for a kids TV movie.
The new film, Nicky Deuce, stars Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa. They played gang members Christopher and Bobby. Also starring are Tony Sirico and Vincent Curatola, who played fellow mobster Paulie and rival boss Johnny Sack.
It's the first time they have performed together since hit TV show The Sopranos ended five years ago.
The cast of the new film also includes veteran actress Rita Moreno and Cristine Prosperi of Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Nicky Deuce tells the story of a ruch suburban kid who is sent to stay with his Italian relatives in Brooklyn, and becomes convinced they are secretly mobsters.
It is based on the children's book of the same title authored by Schirripa and Charles Fleming.
It's currently in production in Montreal. It's set to premiere next year on Nickelodeon.
