Entourage is to be transformed into a movie.

The American TV show aired from 2004 until 2011 and there has long been speculation a big screen adaptation was in the pipeline.

Warner Bros. has now decided the plans will go ahead, according to Deadline.

Entourage follows the lives of film star Vincent Chase, his best friend and manager Eric Murphy, another friend called Turtle and Vincent's half-brother Johnny 'Drama' Chase, who is also an actor but not as successful as his sibling.

The show followed the group as they tried to adjust to life in Los Angeles and was executive produced by Mark Wahlberg. Doug Ellin directed the series and will be helming the movie version too, although it's unknown what the plot will be at the moment.

Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara played the foursome in the series and are all in the midst of negotiations for the movie.

Jeremy Piven famously portrayed Vincent's agent Ari Gold and is also in discussions about a deal.

At the moment it's unknown when shooting will begin or when the release will hit screens.

In the last episode of the show, Ari decided to give up his job so he could focus on his marriage and being a good husband. However, after the credits rolled he was seen getting a phone call about the job offer of a lifetime - which he was considering.

Jeremy has previously admitted he'd love to reprise the character and believes the series ending would make the perfect start for a film.

"Could we do more? Absolutely. But I think that's the perfect way to end it," he said. "And people's biggest complaint with me is that there needs to be more show - it's not long enough. So I think that we're set up pretty nicely for a movie."

People are relying on you to pull your weight. The sooner you tackle your work, the faster you will be able to enjoy some leisure time. Catching up on your reading, playing a sport or watching a movie will help you wind down. There are worse things than being held captive by a regular routine.More
