The son of late "Sopranos" actor James Gandolfini is playing a younger version of his father's old character for an upcoming prequel film to the mobster series.

Michael Gandolfini, 19, is playing a young Tony Soprano for "The Many Saints of Newark," which will hit theaters in 2020.

"It's a profound honor to continue my dad's legacy while stepping into the shoes of a young Tony Soprano," Gandolfini told Deadline. "I'm thrilled that I'm going to have the opportunity to work with David Chase and the incredible company of talent he has assembled for 'The Many Saints of Newark.'"

James Gandolfini was the star of "Sopranos" during its run from 1999-2007. He died of a heart attack in Rome in 2013 at age 51.
