NEWARK -

Filmmakers for the "Sopranos" prequel movie "The Many Saints of Newark" are looking for extras.

The filmmakers will be holding a casting call Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. at Express Newark, located on the second floor of 54 Halsey St. in Newark.

They are looking for men, women and children of all ages to appear in a scene set in 1967 -- the year of the Newark riots.

Michael Gandolfini, the son of "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini, plays a young Tony Soprano in the film.

"The Many Saints of Newark" is set to film in Newark from May 6-8 at Branford Place, between Washington and Broad streets.
