Feted production company 30WEST is behind The Trashers, a retelling of Jimmy Galante’s life, the inspiration for the Tony Soprano character.

David Harbour is set to star in a dramatic retelling of the rise and fall of Jimmy Galente, the real-life figure said to be the inspiration for the iconic Tony Soprano character. This is for the film The Trashers, for which the script has been penned by Adam R Perlman who has previously penned TV drama Billions.

The Trashers, which is set to be directed by Cha Cha Real Smooth‘s Cooper Raiff, will chart Galente’s life as ‘a trash magnate in Danbury, Connecticut who, in 2004, bought the city’s minor league hockey team and assigned his teenage son to run it. The team gained notoriety for their rough and violent style of play, but also developed a wide fan base as they started to win more and more games. The team’s success and fame all came to an abrupt end with Galante’s arrest on 72 criminal charges.’

It sounds like a great idea for a story to us, and Harbour, who will soon be seen on small screens again as Hopper in the upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things, adds value to any project he appears in. What’s more, 30WEST, the production company behind the project, is known for putting out some really enjoyable movies too, such as Late Night and I, Tonya, as well as being behind the upcoming ‘reimagining’ of The Crow. We’ll bring you more on this one as we hear it.
