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

HBO said on 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 theatres.

An air date for Criminal Justice hasn't been announced.
