Sorry folks, but Tony Soprano isn't coming back to HBO just yet.

Of course, Gandolfini still retains his partnership with the network, having appeared in HBO Pictures' 'Cinema Verite' and executive produced the recent 'Hemingway and Gellhorn' but what about 'Criminal Justice' couldn't HBO get behind?

Due to the size of the screens and budgets, most television auteurs (Aaron Sorkin, David Milch, Louis C.K.) are writers first and directors second, if at all.

His dialogue is always outstanding -- and the rat-a-tat back-and-forth of a New Jersey Italian family in turmoil will sound mighty familiar to 'Sopranos' fans -- but he's also a naturally gifted visual storyteller, equally at home speaking through images instead of words.
