About a year ago Entourage ended its eight season run on HBO. Before it even ended there was talk of continuing story of the characters on the big screen, and creator Doug Ellin has been hard at work pushing it forward to make it happen. There's been no solid time table of when the movie would happen, but according to Deadline, Ellin is 110 pages into the script and plans on finishing it by Sunday!
Apparently, everyone is incredibly excited about getting the movie made, and the show's producer, Mark Whalberg, has been pushing Ellin to get the script finished. According to Ellin, Wahlberg keeps promising “to kill me if I don’t write faster. Every time I see him, Mark says, ‘I’ve made 5 movies this year. Get going!”
He goes on to talk about the movie he's written, revealing that it takes place 6 months after the TV series ends, which sees agent Ari Gold as a newly minted studio mogul. He goes on to say,
There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters.
The movie has yet to get the official greenlight, as the studio is waiting for Ellin to turn in the script so they can read it! But chances are this movie is eventually going to happen. The cast, crew, and fans all want to see it made! We can only hope that the movie ends up being just as fun and entertaining as the series was, who knows... maybe it will be more fun and entertaining!
I enjoyed the series, and I'm looking forward to see what in store for them next! Jeremy Piven (Ari), Adrian Grenier (Vince), Kevin Dillon (Drama), Kevin Connolly (E), and Jerry Ferrara (Turtle) are all expected to return.
Are you excited to hear that the script is basically finished, and this movie is moving forward!?
