Entourage movie gets the go ahead
The Entourage film has finally got the green light, the show's creator Doug Ellin has confirmed.
Doug, who is also the show's executive producer and head writer, revealed the HBO TV series, starring Jeremy Piven, Adrian Grenier and Kevin Connolly, is finally headed for the big screen.
"It's a go. Love you all," he tweeted, alongside a photo of the cast.
Sources told Deadline that deals for the leading cast - Adrian, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin - have been reached, with producers Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson stepping in to close the offers this weekend.
The movie adaptation was due to go ahead earlier this year but was delayed while wage details were ironed out. It was thought some of the stars wanted to negotiate more money for the film.
The popular HBO comedy drama series ran from 2004 until 2011 and the studio is now hoping to begin production on the film spin-off in January.
Several of the original stars are due to reprise their roles from the show about up and coming film star Vincent Chase (Adrian) and his friends.
The plot is thought to focus on the lead characters - Vincent, Ari Gold (Jeremy), Eric 'E' Murphy (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry) and Johnny 'Drama' Chase (Kevin Dillon).
