Entourage Script To Be Completed This Week By Series Creator Doug Ellin
The final episode of Entourage debuted one year ago yesterday and today delivers some great news for fans: the script for the planned feature film is about to be completed. While there has been talk of a possible Entourage movie years ago, it's now being reported that show creator Doug Ellin is on page 110 of his screenplay and plans to finish it by the start of next week (for those that don't know, in movie scripts one page equals approximately one minute of screentime, so the average script is between 90 and 120 pages).
Deadline has received an email from Ellin saying that he plans to be done with the screenplay by Sunday and that the project has the support of HBO, and executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Steven Levinson. "Every time I see him, Mark says, ‘I’ve made 5 movies this year. Get going!” Ellin said.
The creator says that the movie will pick up six months after the series ended. In the finale, Ari Gold (the character played by Jeremy Piven) moved from being an agent to a studio mogul, and Ellin says that is in the script from page one. What is more important than that, however, is the relationship between friends Vince (Adrian Grenier), Drama (Kevin Dillon), E (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara). "Foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters," he said. The project has already been greenlighted by the studio based on a pitch, and now HBO will read the script and decide if they want to move forward and make deals with the cast.
