David Chase on creating the final scene of The Sopranos

Eight years after it aired, the finale of The Sopranos continues to be hotly debated. David Chase explains how he created the excruciating tension of the last scene. What he won’t say is what happened at the end.

David Chase, creator of The Sopranos, is returning to make a new HBO miniseries about the history of Hollywood filmmaking. From an article on NYTimes.com:

The series, Ribbon of Dreams, will begin with the behind-the-scenes roles played by two fictional characters – one a cowboy with some violence in his past, the other a mechanical engineer – who work for the famous early film director D. W. Griffith. It will follow them and their professional heirs through the development of the movie business.
