London, Sept 27 (ANI): HBO has revealed that Robert De Niro will replace James Gandolfini, in their new mini-series Criminal Justice, following 'The Sopranos' star's death.

The 70-year-old actor is going to play the role of an ambulance-chasing New York lawyer in the show which Gandolfini had been developing, based on the 2008 BBC series by Peter Moffat, the BBC reported.

Gandolfini died in June at the age of 51, after suffering from a heart attack.
