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.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
