Just when Ray Liotta thinks he’s done playing mobsters, they pull him back in: The Goodfellas star is in talks to join the cast of the upcoming Sopranos prequel movie, our sister site Deadline reports.

The film, titled The Many Saints of Newark, is a prequel to the Emmy-winning HBO drama, set during the 1960s Newark riots.
