'SOPRANOS' HUNG UP

HBO has suspended production of "The Sopranos" fifth season, which was scheduled to begin on March 24, as a result of the salary dispute with star James Gandolfini. According to Variety, HBO's final offer to Gandolfini was $11 million for a 13-episode fifth season. The Emmy winner wants $27 million.
