As if the television show hadn’t become insufferable enough before it finally ended in 2011, Entourage is returning to haunt our lives with its smarmy and smug Hollywood bromancery. But it will no longer be infecting your television—Entourage is coming to your big screen. Yes, Warner Bros. is green lighting a film follow-up to the mercifully ended TV show about a movie star, his friends, his agent, and the facile portrait of Hollywood life they all live in.
The program was produced by Mark Wahlberg, and many elements from the show were fictionalized takes on situations from his own life. According to /Film, Entourage creator Doug Ellin will write and direct the film, which will likely see stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, and Jeremy Piven returning, as well as supporting turns from Rex Lee, Scott Caan, Beverly D’Angelo, Alice Eve, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and Perry Reeves.
The show left off with Jeremy Piven’s agent character, Ari, becoming the head of a studio and Adrian Grenier’s star heading to Paris to marry a reporter.
According to Ellin, the film takes place six months after the end of the series and “foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties.” So, more hanging out and parties. Your movie, ladies and gentlemen.
