James Gandolfini may no longer be with us, but there are posthumous projects on the way that will give us a last look at his incredible acting chops.

The late actor best known for changing television as we know it as Tony Soprano will next be seen in "Enough Said," opposite "Seinfeld" legend Julia Louis-Dreyfus. "Enough Said" marked the last leading role for Gandolfini, who passed away from a heart attack last month at the age of 51. Louis-Dreyfus plays a divorced mom who starts a romance with Albert (Gandolfini), who turns out to be the ex-husband of her new best friend, Marianne (Catherine Keener). Fox Searchlight will release the rom-com on September 20th.

Gandolfini had also completed work on the crime drama "Animal Rescue," which stars Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. "Animal Rescue," in which Gandolfini plays a bar owner, is due in theaters next year.

He was a producer on the green-lit series "Criminal Justice," which reunited him with "The Sopranos" network HBO. The late actor had completed work for the pilot episode as the character Jack Stone. HBO had originally passed on the series in February but reversed their decision in May with a seven-episode order. Get More »
