Watch The First Trailer For David Chase's Not Fade Away, Starring James Gandolfini

David Chase has already left an impressive legacy in television medium. Beginning with The Rockford Files from 1976 to 1980 to Northern Exposure from 1993 to 1995 and leading to The Sopranos from 1999 to 2007, he has left a mark on the small screen that will not soon be forgotten. But, strangely, he has never found time in his career to direct or produce a feature film (in fact, his only movie work in his career is as an uncredited screenwriter on the 1972 horror Grave of the Vampire). Those days have come to an end, however.

For a while now Chase has been working on his feature directorial debut, the period rock n roll drama Not Fade Away, and with the movie set to come out in December it has sent out its first trailer. Watch it below and see it in HD over at Apple.

Set in 1964 New Jersey, the film chronicles the gathering of a group of friends who decide to start a rock band together. The lead cast is largely unknowns, but Chase. who also wrote the script, has James Gandolfini, Brad Garrett, Bella Heathcote, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Christopher McDonald playing supporting roles. Paramount Pictures has come aboard to distribute the movie, and will be giving it a limited theatrical release on December 21st.
