Mark Wahlberg Sheds More Light On Entourage Movie Announcement

Mark Wahlberg has fanned the flames of excitement that lit yesterday in light of Warners announcing a film of HBO comedy Entourage, by offering further details on the project.

Wahlberg is one of the executive producers of the comedy, which ran from 2004 to 2011, and, as well as telling MTV that he’d be more than up for a cameo, he also let slip that filming was set to get underway this summer with a view to releasing the film in Spring 2014 – though earlier could be possible. “We always felt like it was a movie, but we had to just make these 30-minute episodes” Wahlberg commented. “That was one of the one of the frustrating things. It always felt like we left the audience wanting more, which is a good thing in doing television. I think its story and its characters were a world people really missed and really enjoyed.”

The show’s creator Doug Ellin is on board to direct the film, with the script already written, and talks are on-going to get stars Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven involved. Wahlberg said there were always plans to continue the show in some form or other. “Doug wanted to go off to do another show, and HBO liked the idea of doing it, but to have Doug actually have time to sit down and write the script ... I always knew the fans wanted a movie” he explained. “It just took a long time. It took a long time to get it written, get it right, and we got a fantastic script. Warner Bros. is very excited about it. All the guys are excited.” And so are we, Mark, and so are we.
