Robert De Niro Takes Over James Gandolfini Miniseries Role

(AP) LOS ANGELES–HBO says Robert De Niro will step into a project that was thrown into question by the death of James Gandolfini.

HBO said Wednesday that De Niro is taking on the role of a New York City attorney handling a murder case in the miniseries “Criminal Justice.”

Gandolfini had played the attorney in the pilot episode. The star of “The Sopranos” died in June at age 51 after suffering a heart attack.

An air date for “Criminal Justice” hasn’t been announced.
