What would you do to see the Sopranos movie get made?

As all Sopranos die-hards are well aware, each and every former cast member has agreed to make a Sopranos movie…except one very important person: Mr. Tony Soprano himself. Luckily, his co-star and former on-screen wife, Edie Falco, has hatched a brilliant plan to get James Gandolfini to jump on board, and shared her genius idea with HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

“There’s nothing that guy needs. There’s nothing he wants. I think he’s very happy,” Edie, 46, told us at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Evening with Nurse Jackie in North Hollywood March 15.

She added, “I got nothing to offer him except that if I could play Tony. He might do it if I played Tony and he played Carmela.”

Hear that, Mr. Gandolfini? The offer is out on the table — so put your best dress on, because your fans demand it!

Are you just dying to see the Sopranos movie get green-lit?
