An "Entourage" movie has received the green light. Everyone's favorite cast of characters from the hit HBO TV series will soon be appearing on the big screen, although the film's setting may not be in Hollywood.
A report from TIME Magazine on Jan. 30 says that according to Deadline website, the film was OK'd just yesterday by Warner Bros. studios. The upcoming film will be written and directed by Doug Ellin, who was an executive producer on the HBO series.
As for the cast, it's expected that the main five will be back at the very least. That's Jeremy Piven as "Ari Gold," Kevin Dillon as "Johnny Drama," Jerry Ferrara as "Turtle," Kevin Connolly as "E" and Adrian Grenier as "Vincent Chase." Other characters who haven't been confirmed but appeared in the series during its final season were played by Debi Mazar, Perrey Reeves, Rex Lee, Scott Caan and Emmanuelle Chriqui.
As of the eight and final season of the HBO series, Vincent Chase (Grenier) had just met the love of his life, a magazine writer named Sophia Lear (Alice Eve). The two were set to be married on a wedding overseas, with the rest of the crew tagging along for the ceremony. The new "Entourage" movie will pick up six months after that finale and may be based "abroad" rather than in the home base of California.
HBO's "Entourage" ran from 2004 through 2011 for its eight seasons, and won a number of awards over the years including Emmy awards, Golden Globe awards and Screen Actors Guild awards.
