An "Entourage" movie is finally happening, Deadline reports.
The project hails from Warner Bros., and will be a sequel to the hit HBO series that centered around a film star and his inner circle. The show's creator, Doug Ellin, has written the screenplay and will direct the movie, with Deadline reporting that the studio is in the process of making deals with stars Adrian Grenier (Vincent "Vinnie" Chase), Kevin Connolly (Eric “E” Murphy), Kevin Dillon (Johnny Drama), Jerry Ferrara (Turtle), and Jeremy Piven, who plays Vinnie's super-agent Ari Gold.
So far, the movie has no start date set for filming. The HBO series ran for 8 seasons between 2004-2011, ending with Piven's character quitting his agency job to commit fully to his marriage to Mrs. Ari (Perrey Reeves), before being offered his dream job as the chairman of Time Warner. According to Ellin, the film will pick up six months after the finale and focus on Ari's new career move.
"We're teed up for a movie in a way that, you know, Ari has this conundrum that he's facing," Piven said during an appearance on "The Talk" last year, "which is either to rule the world or to honor his love to his wife."
Executive producer Mark Wahlberg also weighed in on what he wanted to see from the movie back in June of 2012: "I think a 90-minute movie of sheer craziness -- the guys getting back to just being about the guys, you know? Lose the ladies. Go crazy. Give people what they want."
