Gas up the Lincoln Continental and get ready to open those suicide doors again because the boys are back in town!
Well, they will be soon anyway…
The Entourage movie is ON and expected to start shooting in January 2014!
Even though initial reports were that some of the guys were holding out for more money, Jerry Ferrara, AKA Turtle, is now saying that no one is demanding a bigger paycheck for the flick!
He told Dan Patrick this morning that their deal to do the film could be finalized as soon as TODAY! Jerry spilled live on-air, saying:
"It is just right there. It couldn't be closer. I'm expecting it to be officially done today."
He explained that while no one, including him, is officially signed, they've all agreed to do it in principle.
But is someone in the crew going to get a bigger payday for this flick?
Dan assumed it would be Jeremy Piven who would make the most but Jerry doesn't think so! While he admitted he didn't know any details about the deal struck with Jeremy, who won 3 Emmys for his turn as Ari Gold, Ferrara assumes they're all getting identical paychecks!
Hmm. That doesn't sound right to us. And even if they are all getting paid the same amount upfront, there MUST be some backend deals that executive producer Mark Wahlberg is shelling out!
C'mon. We've all seen Ari in action. That guy ain't signing on any dotted line unless he knows he stands to make some serious cash!
Ch-ch-check out Jerry's full interview below!
