HBO says Robert De Niro will step into a project that was thrown into question by the death of James Gandolfini.

HBO said Wednesday that De Niro is taking on the role of a New York City attorney handling a murder case in the miniseries “Criminal Justice.”

Gandolfini had played the attorney in the pilot episode. The star of “The Sopranos” died in June at age 51 after suffering a heart attack.

“Criminal Justice” was one of Gandolfini’s last projects. Another is the film “Enough Said,” which is now in some theaters.

An air date for “Criminal Justice” hasn’t been announced.
