The hugely popular HBO show Entourage, may finally go in development for a big screen appearance. After over a year of work, Deadline has reported that Doug Ellin has nearly finished the screenplay. With plans to pick up six months after the series ended, the movie will continue the premise of the guys going to wild parties and Ari’s new position as head of a studio among other business ventures. HBO has not committed to the Entourage as of yet, but the film will follow the same exact concept that was on the cable channel.
Ellin is currently under an all show deal at HBO, in which he recently created two shows. A comedy with Ed Burns and a boxing drama with Spike Lee entitled, Da Brick, both of which the network passed on. With the large following that Entourage has, the movie should fair much better.
The original cast of Entourage was made up of Jeremy Piven (Ari Gold), Adrian Grenier (Vince), Kevin Dillon (Drama), Kevin Connoly (E) and Jerry Ferrara (Turtle), who are all expected to return for the movie. Executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Steven Levinson, are pressuring Ellin (in a good way) to complete the script in a timely fashion, while the show is still fresh in the fans’ minds.
