The popular HBO series Entourage is making it’s way to the big screen. After years of talk, HBO has given the green light to turn the series into a film.
The HBO show ran from 2004 to 2011 and helped put stars like Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, and Jerry Ferrara on the map. According to Deadline Hollywood, the creator of the series, Doug Ellin, will direct the movie based on a screenplay he wrote. and the film will be executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, whose the series is loosely based on his close group of friends.
There has not been much detail given about the possible start date or official release of the film, however, the film is set to come out in 2014 or 2015. Deals are in the works to bring back Grenier, Connolly, and Ferrara. Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven have been in discussion on returning as well.
In 2010, Mark Wahlberg mentioned to MTV News that he was anxious to bring the series to the big screen. “I just think we can make a great movie. 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.” In September, Wahlberg revealed that Ellin had completed the script and could begin production at any moment. The plot of the film is unknown, but Wahlberg explains that it is “going back to the basics” from the beginning of the series. “I think they were all weighed down by these strong women towards the end of the series, so we are going to get them going crazy everyone wants to see them go nuts again.”
