The series’ creator Doug Ellin has been talking about a possible Entourage feature for some time and it looks as if he and fans have gotten their wish. Ellin will be directing the film from his own screenplay.
For the uninitiated, the dramedy series centered on up-and-coming Hollywood star Vinnie Chase (Adrian Grenier), his attack dog manager Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) and his small circle of friends that includes his best friend and manager, his step-brother and his childhood friend who serves as his driver. The show was loosely based on executive producer Mark Wahlberg’s friends and experiences he had during his early years in the film business.
Deadline is reporting that there is no start date set for the film and that deals with the cast are currently being hammered out.
Entourage won’t be the first HBO series to make the jump to the big screen. Sex And The City managed back in 2008. Hopefully, if the does well enough to earn a sequel, it will do better than Sex And The City 2.
