After weeks of speculation and rumors, it looks like the “Entourage” movie is finally, officially, happening. The news came from Jerry Ferrara, who played Turtle on the series.
In the first of two tweets about the news, Jerry writes, “I am proud to announce the #Entourage movie is officially a GO! Have to thank @wbpictures and @HBO for all the support to make this happen!” He followed that with, “On behalf of the 4 guys I wanna also thank the #entourage fans for the patience. The BOYS are BACK.”
It all started October 16 when executive producer Mark Wahlberg said greed was holding up the project. Kevin Connolly (Eric) was confident the movie would happen, while Adrian Grenier (Vince) seemed to be the one holding out, as he wanted the four main cast members not named Jeremy Piven to get deals that would allow them to share in the movie’s success, should that come. Piven was already signed on for the movie, doing so in August.
According to Connolly, it looks like January is the goal for starting production on the movie. Creator Doug Ellin also confirmed the movie deal on his Twitter, writing, “It’s a go. love you all.”
