The star of the up­com­ing “The So­pra­nos” pre­quel says a young Tony So­prano will be a part of the film – but had good rea­son to be care­ful about how much else he re­vealed about “The Many Saints of Ne­wark.”

Alessan­dro Nivola talked about the project on the red car­pet Wed­nes­day be­fore a panel dis­cus­sion led by cre­ator David Chase to cel­e­brate the 20th an­niver­sary of “The So­pra­nos” in New York.

“I guess I got to be kind of dis­creet about it, so David Chase doesn’t kill me,” Nivola said. “I’m play­ing Dickie Molti­santi, who is the cen­tral char­ac­ter in the movie, and he is Christo­pher Molti­santi’s dad.”

Christo­pher Molti­santi, who was played by Michael Im­pe­ri­oli in the se­ries, was a pro­tege of Tony So­prano, the New Jersey mob boss por­trayed by James Gan­dolfini.

Though the el­der Molti­santi never ap­peared in the se­ries, he is often men­tioned as part of Christo­pher’s back­story.
