The boys are back. Warner Bros. has given a green light to an Entourage film, Deadline.com reports.
Production on the HBO series wrapped in 2011, and the film will provide another chance for fans to catch up on the lives of Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), Vinny Chase (Adrian Grenier), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), Drama (Kevin Dillon), and E (Kevin Connolly).
For now, all that’s known about the silver screen adaptation is that Entourage creator, Doug Ellin, will direct the flick. He also wrote the screenplay. Final deals for Piven, Grenier, Ferrara, Dillon, and Connolly have yet to be announced.
Piven, and his co-stars have been hoping for a film since the show ended. “We’re teed up for a movie in a way that you know, Ari has this conundrum that he’s facing, which either to rule the world or to honor his love to his wife,” he said in an interview.
In September of 2011, Mark Wahlberg—co-executive producer of the series alongside Stephen Levinson—said that the film “better happen.”
Entourage ran for eight seasons, and followed Chase’s road to stardom after moving from New York with his two childhood friends and brother, to the bright lights of Hollywood.
