Edie Falco will not be appearing in the upcoming “Sopranos” prequel movie after a scene she shot for the film was cut. 

While speaking with NME, director Alan Taylor revealed how Falco was originally supposed to kick off “The Many Saints of Newark”.

“It wound up not being in the final movie but it was a great excuse to see her again,” he shared.

“She’s so ridiculously talented and she’s also one of these people who – and it seems to frequently be women – that manage to be perfect actors and also the sanest people you’ve ever met in your life.”

Taylor also admitted that there was “some confusion as to how best launch the movie,” so they “tried a few things and that was one of them. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll see that we begin it in a very different way now but that wasn’t always the idea.”
