The Sopranos creator David Chase explained the shows weak finale to the New Jersey Star Ledger in an interview that was released on Tuesday. Most viewers were shocked and outraged that the last scene didn’t show Tony being killed and simply went black. Here is what Chase had to say:
“I have no interest in explaining, defending, reinterpreting, or adding to what is there,” he says of the final scene.
“No one was trying to be audacious, honest to god. We did what we thought we had to do. No one was trying to blow people’s minds, or thinking, ‘Wow, this’ll (tick) them off.’ People get the impression that you’re trying to (mess) with them and it’s not true. You’re trying to entertain them.”
Sounds to me like he was leaving the option open for a potential Sopranos movie that might be made down the road.
“I don’t think about (a movie) much,” he says. “I never say never. An idea could pop into my head where I would go, ‘Wow, that would make a great movie,’ but I doubt it.
In other words be prepared to see Tony on the big screen in the next five years.
