We thought Ari Gold was the king of sealing the deal — could he really be the reason behind the hold-up on the Entourage movie?
Yes! And no!
Sources say the studio offered Jeremy Piven — who won multiple Emmys playing the show's raunchy, high-strung super-agent — a lucrative payday to star in the movie and he readily accepted.
Unfortunately, that paved the way for co-star envy and greediness!!
The boys are soooo almost back in business!
We were totes worried we might not see them reunite on the big screen, but it looks like Ari did work some of his magic and is getting everyone pretty close to the same page.
Okay, so we really don't know who worked what magic, but who cares because Kevin Connolly has revealed that the Entourage film is possibly going to start as soon as this upcoming January!
Mark Wahlberg threw fans for a loop when he revealed the project was halted because of some "greedy" cast members. We're not sure who the greedy party might've been or how the problem is being solved, but Adrian Grenier was more than happy to chime in this weekend about those controversial money matters.
And from what we hear, someone might've been trying to mess with his boys! He posted a message on Instagram:
What is the hold up on making the Entourage movie?!
We would think Ari would be able to work his magic and get this project off the ground!
But according to Mark Wahlberg, the executive producer and inspiration for the former HBO series, the reason for the delay is because some involved with the film are holding out for more money!
While walking through LAX, Mark was asked when production would get going on the long-awaited big screen reunion for Vince and the gang. He answered VERY bluntly, saying:
Apparently Adrian Grenier just has to have the Biebs star in the upcoming Entourage film. HUH??
It turns out that Justin Bieber’s documentary left an impression on the HBO actor, who, when asked which celeb he’d like to see cameo in the film, revealed:
Welcome back you cheeky ensemble of Hollywood dudes!
HBO's much beloved series Entourage ended in 2011…
But your favorite quintet of celebrity-chasing (in EVERY sense of the phrase!) men will return to the BIG SCREEN sometime soon, cause the Entourage movie has officially been GREEN LIT by Warner Brothers!!
Negotiations are currently being held with Entourage's main stars so that HOPEFULLY the original crew — Ari (Jeremy Piven), Vince (Adrian Grenier), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), Drama (Kevin Dillon), and E (Kevin Connolly) — will return in series creator Doug Ellin's film version, which picks up 6 months after the show's end.
SO souped to revisit our old TV pals and SO excited to see which celebs will cameo in the movie!
The boys are back in town!
On paper anyway…
Doug Ellin has revealed that he is on page 110 of his screenplay for the Entourage movie and is praying that he's "gonna finish by Sunday."
Even though the hit HBO comedy about a couple of friends living the male Hollywood fantasy ended a year ago, the movie will take place 6 months after the final episode. Ellin himself explain in an email to sources:
Oh, how we would love to have a backseat romance with the lusty Adrian Grenier!
The multi-talented actor, filmmaker, and now singer and musician is back with another collaboration from his very own Wreck Room Records, based out of Brooklyn, NY.
Adrian teams up with Emily Caldwell on this hauntingly beautiful track about young romance in the backseat of a car. Uh-huh.
Turn up the volume and listen to Passenger (above)!
Her vocals are what are dreams are made of. And watching Adrian strum that guitar ain't too bad either…
