HBO’s ‘Entourage’ Movie Script Finally Completed…Yay?
Everyone knows that when a TV series ends, rumors will fly of a potential big-screen adaptation, regardless of any probability of it actually happening. HBO’s long-running, Mark Wahlberg-produced celebrity drama ‘Entourage‘ seemed particularity apt for the transition, given the nature of the series itself, but could it ever really come to fruition? Get ready folks, because whether or not you wanted it, ‘Entourage’ just moved one step closer to the big screen…
Somebody better get some agents on the phone, because it looks like the ‘Entourage’ movie will soon be a go. Deadline has confirmed that series creator Doug Ellin is days away from completing the long-awaited screenplay, which would supposedly pickup about six months after ‘Entourage’ season 8 finale “The End.” The screenplay might have been completed sooner, but Ellin claims he needed time off after 10 years spent on the series.
So what would the feature film see happen to Ari, Vince and the boys? “There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me,” says Ellin. “But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties*, and it continues with the same characters.”
To be fair, HBO has only heard a general pitch and yet to read the actual script, let alone begin negotiations to bring back the cast and make the movie a reality. But what do you think? Would you want to see an ‘Entourage’ movie wrap up the series, or is the show best left in the Hollywood sunset? Tell us what you think in the comments!
* It should be noted that when this news first broke, our immediate response was “Let me guess…they hang out, and go to parties?” We hadn’t actually read Ellin’s description yet, nor seen a single episode of ‘Entourage.’ Food for thought.
