Entourage's Doug Ellin says the movie is now a "go"

10.29.2013

In what feels like a story ripped right from the show itself, ENTOURAGE is finally moving forward after some back-and-forth with the cast in terms of getting their deals straight. Since that's all "behind closed doors" stuff we can only assume that there was some ENTOURAGE-style dialogue being tossed around by Mark Wahlberg, show creator Doug Ellin, and studio execs as deals were negotiated for returning castmembers Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara, and Kevin Dillon. Now, it appears that the film go before the lens in January 2014, nearly a year since it was announced, with Ellin tweeting:

 

 

Personally speaking, I dug the show and will likely catch the movie. It was a lot of fun and while it had some lags at times, it ended on a strong note for me. I know that not everyone feels the same and there's a resounding group of folks who are vehemently against a movie version of the show, and that's just fine. I'm game, though. It's always been about the cast and having the boys back together is enough for me. Shit, having Ari (Piven) back onscreen is enough for me. In fact, I'd argue for a movie just about Ari if ENTOURAGE doesn't pan out.

ENTOURAGE is looking toward a January production start for a yet-to-be-determined release date.

Who cares. I would so much rather have seen a Sopranos movie before the late James died. Now don't get me wrong, the show was awesome. I just feel the time for a movie has long gone. It would have been better had they struck while the iron was hot but that ship has long sailed and from a business standpoint I doubt it'll be a box office success like Sex and The City was. What made that movie successful is you had women camping out and showing up in droves. I doubt anyone will camp out or "show

Just being honest.

Time to start guessing who shows up as themselves in some made-up movie. Or something. Who cares? It wasn't a good a show and I doubt it will make a good movie.

The truth....

If you're gonna make an HBO show into a movie why waste the time and money on Entourage, go with East Bound & Down! Bring on the mullet! Fuck Vince.

they better do something interesting

other than Ari's new job offer as the head of the Illuminati and Drama's cartoon, none of the other characters really had anything interesting going on. Vince better be going for an Oscar or something in the movie. I remember an episode where Vince asks Ari "do you think i'm a good actor" and Ari responds "we have yet to see, but i think you're a great movie star". they should expand on that.

F Yeah Bra!

Now I can sit in a theatre with 350 other guys as rock hard as I am to get my brohood on bra! Totally fucking stupid. Wish they would leave it done. It was an ok show with some really funny moments but lets not pretend or make it out to be anything more than it was. Is anyone really saying thank god this movie is getting made or are we all thinking the same thing. I'll treat it like a really long episode and wait for it to be free on TV?

The only reason I am thanking god that this movie is happening is because of d-bags like yourself that dont have any friends, wondering what the hell a "bro" actually is. That show was funny as hell, we all ARE thinking the same thing, that we want to see this movie, and that YOU need some friends.

Sounds good to me! I love this show up until the last 2 seasons, then it just got a little all over the place. I think the show didn't quite stick the ending the way they were expecting to. I saw where they were going with it, but all those themes and storylines were not explored enough in the final season to make it feel like any sort of conclusion. They pretty much need to make this movie to justify the ending of the tv show and give the fans a proper ending.

I'm with you though, I

I'm with you though, I love the show in general and I'm happy to see the boys getting back together for this. I'll definitely be catching this one when it comes out!

Mixed feelings

While in all likelihood I will eventually see this movie, it really does not get me excited enough to see it on opening weekend. I watched the show from the premiere to the finale, and the only show that had a more steep drop off in quality as it progressed was Heroes. The first three to four seasons were solid, perfect mixture of characters and humor. After that, it just became a paint-by-numbers, predictable show that I only watched simply to pass the time. The only reason to hang on was

The first three to four seasons were solid, perfect mixture of characters and humor. After that, it just became a paint-by-numbers, predictable show that I only watched simply to pass the time. The only reason to hang on was Ari, who admittedly had the only memorable arc of the entire cast in the final season.

But like I said, I'll eventually see it and maybe the time off gave the creators some new ideas. Hoping for the best.
