Turturro replaces De Niro replaces Gandolfini in Criminal Justice

Turturro replaces De Niro replaces Gandolfini in Criminal Justice

John Turturro has replaced Robert De Niro in the HBO event series “Criminal Justice”, says THR.

The series, a U.S. adaptation of Peter Moffat’s 2008 BBC drama of the same name, was originally a vehicle for former “Sopranos” actor James Gandolfini, who died shortly after shooting the pilot.

De Niro left over a scheduling clash; as such, his production company Tribeca Films is no longer involved with the project.

“Transformers” star Turturro will play “Jack Stone (Turturro), an ambulance-chasing lawyer who becomes involved in a case defending a young man accused of murdering a girl on New York’s Upper West Side.”

Riz Ahmed, Bill Camp, Peyman Moaadi and Poorna Jagannathan also star.
