Fans of HBO’s Entourage who have been hoping for a movie for years will be excited to learn that one is on the way. Warner Bros. has reportedly greenlighted a film to explore the further exploits of Vincent Chase, played by Adrian Grenier.
Deadline reported on Tuesday that series creator Doug Ellin will direct and write the screenplay. At this point, the studio is working hard to get the main cast back together, negotiating with Grenier, Kevin Connolly (who played Eric Murphy), Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven.
According to MTV News, co-executive producer Mark Wahlberg has been talking about making an Entourage film for years. “I just think we can make a great movie. I think people always wanted [it] and have complained that the episodes are too short — they've always wanted more,” he said back in 2010. “I think we're going to do it. We just have to end strong, and this season is, by far, the best season so far.”
Back in September, Wahlberg said that Ellin already wrote the script.
“[The movie is] going to get back to the basics, kind of like the beginning of the series,” Wahlberg said in an interview with Hollyscoop, notes MTV. “We had very strong female characters, but we want the guys to get back to just being guys.”
Entourage ran for eight seasons from 2004 to 2011.
