David Chase Developing LITTLE BLACK DRESS as His Second Film!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
David Chase, the creator and mastermind of The Sopranos, has spent most of his career in television. He made his film debut last year with NOT FADE AWAY. His second feature, to be titled LITTLE BLACK DRESS, has been picked up by Paramount and is being fast-tracked for production, according to Deadline. The story will revolve around:
...a twentysomething female war veteran who comes back from Afghanistan grappling with a disability. While working a potentially lethal investigation at a post-war job, she gets involved with a superstitious NYPD detective who helps bring her back from a personal precipice.
I found myself feeling rather lukewarm about NOT FADE AWAY - there were things that I liked about it (a powerful and nuanced performance from James Gandolfini, for one), and other parts that just didn't come together as well. I'm really interested to see what Chase does with this new project, though - it sounds like it could be a really interesting story. The returning soldier is certainly a relevant and timely premise, and the something that Chase has the skill to develop into an interesting character study.
What do you guys think?
