‘Entourage’ Movie Delayed ‘Cause the Crew Wants Mo’ Money
An ‘Entourage‘ movie was announced back in January, which would reunite the stars of the hit HBO series on the big screen, but has not since shown much development. Now the film is delayed due to some monetary disagreements between the cast and the producers.
According to Page Six, the cast, including Adrian Grenier and Jeremy Piven, are demanding more money, delaying production, which was supposed to kick off in May of this year. Piven is reportedly the first to cement down his contract, but there are other members still in negotiations
Producer Mark Wahlberg, soon to be seen in the upcoming ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ previously stated that everyone, including Warner Bros., is excited to bring the ‘Entourage’ movie to fruition. “It took a long time to get it written, get it right, and we got a fantastic script.”
Ari Gold (Piven), Vincent “Vince” Chase (Grenier), Eric “E” Murphy (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny “Drama” Chase (Kevin Dillon) are all expected to return for the film version, and, as Wahlberg said, would all be the focus of the film. The project was originally aimed for release sometime in April or May of 2014, but these contract negotiations could be delaying the release even more.
Warner Bros. previously released the film version of ‘Sex and the City’ and its sequel.
