A movie based on the hit HBO series Entourage is finally happening, after several stops and starts. Actor Jerry Ferrara confirmed the news on The Wendy Williams Show and writer/director Doug Ellin tweeted a picture of the cast.
There has been talk of an Entourage movie for years, with producer Mark Wahlberg confirming that it is on the way in Sept. 2011. Warner Bros. gave it the green light back in January. But interest has heated up again, thanks to what the stars have said as of late. Kevin Connolly told TMZ that it was happening and then The Hollywood Reporter did a story on what was allegedly hoping it up: actor Jeremy Piven’s backend compensation. The site reported that Warner Bros. is hoping to make the film for under $30 million.
