“It’s underneath what’s going on,” he reiterated about the series’ focus, “It’s the criminals and the gangs. The guys who are running Wall Street, basically. The guys who are running the United States.”
Not quite, that would be a series about the Banking Clans and the people actually running the Empire. This should be more like Goodfellas.
Even if the series is a few more years away, McCallum says there’s no risk in the scripts become dating and that the delay can only make the show stronger.
“They’re timeless,” he explains. “They take place between Episode III and Episode IV. That 20 year period when Luke is growing up. It’s not about Luke, but it’s about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over].”
Is Star Wars: The Sopranos really what the audience wants? At least it’s different, though.
