I haven’t been updating this site much lately, so kinda missed this: the news that Mark Wahlberg, executive producer of my favourite show of all time, Entourage, has told newsy folks that the script for the Entourage movie is finally ready. Well, to be precise, the articles claim that Mark was to receive a copy of the finished script from show creator Doug Ellin, not that it’s approved and good to start shooting or anything official like that. Details, details. Better late than never and all that, right? And here I’m referring to me telling you lot about this, and not him getting the script, although that’s valid too.
I for one have been waiting for what seems like ages, since the last episode wrapped up last year, to see what Ari Gold and the Entourage crew get up to next. The world is a somewhat sadder place at the moment without the latest wisecracks from everyone’s favourite agent, brilliantly played by Jeremy Piven, along with really entertaining performances from the gang – Vince, Turtle, Johnny Drama and Eric. Plus, Emmanuelle Chriqui isn’t exactly an eyesore, now is she?
This according to deadline.com:
(Doug) Ellin says that Wahlberg keeps promising “to kill me if I don’t write faster. Every time I see him, Mark says, ‘I’ve made 5 movies this year. Get going!”
He says his script starts about 6 months after the TV series leaves off. “There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me. 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.”
Can’t wait! It’s going to be epic. As soon as any trailers or publicity come along I’ll be sure to post them here.
