It Looks Like The ‘Entourage’ Movie Is Finally Going To Happen

For eight seasons the cast of Entourage entertained audiences worldwide with tales of friendship in the land known as Hollywood. When the show ended, fans cried for more, and for years it was teased that a movie would be made to offer additional closure to supporters. Scheduling conflicts continuously arose, putting the film’s likelihood in jeopardy, but a tweet sent by show creator Doug Ellin last night (October 28) has us feeling more optimistic than ever that Vince, E, Turtle, and Drama will soon be in our lives once more.

Keeping things short and vague, Doug Ellin took to Twitter shortly after 8pm EST last night with a message that read, “It’s a go. Love you all,” alongside a photo of the Entourage cast. This contradicts recent reports that the main cast – Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly – were holding out for more money, but we’re not about to complain.

Speaking of the main cast, Ferrara recently discussed the movie’s progress while promoting his appearance in Last Vegas on The Wendy Williams Show. When asked about the chances of the movie happening, Ferrara said the production was “looking real good” and a deal for it “could be closed today.” It appears he may have been more right than any of us could have known.

The one big piece of the puzzle left out of most Entourage movie posts currently is the fate of Jeremy Piven’s beloved character, Ari Gold. Piven originally wasn’t sure about whether or not a film continuation was good for the series, but ultimately signed on somewhere amidst the numerous scheduling conflicts. Piven, who’s always had a more lucrative deal than his co-stars, negotiated a more generous back-end participation than anticipated and his colleagues wanted something more equitable. That dealmaking protracted and the movie was in jeopardy of seeing the window for its California film tax credit disappear, something that Warner Bros. deemed conditional for its making. Production is likely to start in January.
