Since The Sopranos ended in 2007, creator David Chase has mostly taken it easy, dividing his time between writing and directing last year's Not Fade Away and fielding a steady stream of questions about his show's controversial ending. But Chase is wasting no time getting to work on his next project, selling a spec script for Little Black Dress, a film about a disabled Afghanistan veteran who comes home and finds herself involved in a "potentially lethal" investigation.
