BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The NFL is currently kneepad-deep in free agency, and the trades are coming as fast as the bullshit flows from one superagent Ari Goldís mouthpiece. His portrayer, actor Jeremy Piven, is full of a few things himself, but none of it is the Super Bowl-winning pride of superstar young quarterback Russell Wilson.
The Entourage movie has shoots planned in L.A. and Miami. We donít have a lot of details about the plot, though if you stuck with the show over the course of its cable run, you know that it will poke fun at the interior of the film industry, this time promoting Pivenís super agent, Ari Gold, to a full-blown studio head.
THR describes Thorntonís role as if it will fit like a black leather glove: heíll play a billionaire cowboy turned film financier who gambles on Adrian Grenier's Vinny Chase to star in a mega blockbuster. Thornton, who seems like heís been 44 years old forever, will mostly be overseeing the production from afar, as his character will have a twentysomething son on set monitoring the action and ensuring his investment is sound.
Entourage movie began principal photography last Thursday, January 16th. And thanks to Ellin's Instagram account, it's like we all dropped by for a visit.
If you want all the latest details on the upcoming, actually-real Entourage movie, you could do worse than to follow the Instagram feed of series creator Doug Ellin. He was the first person to confirm, last month, that the contract disputes had been settled and the boys were coming back, and today he posted the above photo and message, which confirms the movie will go into production on January 16.
Could the Entourage movie finally find a reason to exist by hiring a supermodel to star in it? The spinoff from the long-running HBO series presumably has some die-hard fans who want to show up in theaters to see the further adventures of Vincent Chase and the boys, but just in case it doesn't, don't worry: The Wrap reports that Sports Illustrated cover model Kate Upton is being eyed for a lead role in the film, which is set to start production early next year
Because the life of Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven and company apparently really is like an episode of Entourage, everything has magically worked out in the process of making an Entourage movie; according to a tweet from Doug Ellin, the series creator and intended director of the film, the HBO series is finally on its way toward the big screen
The mystery of who is holding up the Entourage movie continues to unravel with news that Jeremy Piven's fat deal with the film's producers has caused envy amongst his would-be costars.
Just last week, Entourage producer Mark Wahlberg was accosted at LAX airport by paparazzi. Asked about when the long in-the-works project might finally roll into production, Wahlberg said, ďAs soon as them guys stop being so greedy.Ē
Wahlberg wasnít specific by who he means with ďthem guys,Ē so TMZ speculates that heís referring to members of the cast. Are certain actors asking for too much money to be part of a big-screen Entourage movie? Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Kevin Connolly arenít exactly lighting the industry on fire.
Unlike shows like Arrested Development and Firefly, the HBO series Entourage was still very much alive when rumors about a possible movie began - in fact, it was only in the fourth season of its eventual eight season run. Talk about a feature continued during the entire rest of the show's run and only intensified once it aired its season finale in September of 2011.
Since the series' cancellation the Entourage boys are struggling to find their groove, save for Jerry Ferrara, who landed a role in the spring hit Think Like a Man and now may join the star-stacked ensemble comedy Last Vegas.
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.
Their enthusiasm shouldn't be mistaken for actual plans-- this is the strong face they present to critics as they promote the final season of their show, and it may not bear any resemblance to financial or creative reality. If an Entourage movie is going to happen, it ought to happen now
Hopefully youíre ready to see Jeremy Pivenís serious side because in one of his latest films, Angels Crest, Piven really turns on the drama tackling some rather troubling subject matter. In honor of the filmís world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival...
