David Chase has sold his latest script, Little Black Dress, to Paramount Pictures, where it will be fast-tracked with the Sopranos creator also attached to direct.

The character-driven film tells the story of a young female war veteran who returns from Afghanistan with a disability she must learn to cope with, Deadline reports. The character also works on a dangerous investigation with a superstitious New York detective.

David Chase Recalls Teenage Love of the Rolling Stones in New Film

The film will be Chase's second since The Sopranos ended in 2007. Last year, he made his directorial debut with Not Fade Away, a paean to the early days of rock & roll centered around a group of friends in suburban New Jersey who start a band inspired by the Beatles and Rolling Stones. (He also wrote the script.)

As Chase told Rolling Stone, the movie was inspired partly by his own love of the music and his own adolescent rock-star ambitions. "I played drums and then bass, but I wasn't very good. I was in a band, but we never played for anybody," he said. "It was a total garage band, four years the same guys, and we never did anything. It was just me and my friends talking, talking and talking, and playing somewhat. But talking really about the music, and listening."
