Doug Ellin, creator of the TV series Entourage, told Deadline today that he is almost done with the screenplay for the feature film, and plans to hand it in by the end of the weekend.
The film will pick up six months after the events of last year's series finale, with Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) fully transitioned into the role of Studio Head, and Vince about to get married. Fans of the series needn't worry though, because Ellin explains that the film will also focus heavily on the gang "still hanging out and going to fun parties." Sigh of relief!
The series, loosely based on the life of producer Mark Wahlberg (Ted), starred Adrian Grenier as Vince Chase, a movie star who keeps his three best friends, played by Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly, and Jerry Ferrara (Battleship), by his side.
A possible film was announced a while back, as an epilogue to the series, but it is still not a done deal. The studio must approve the script and sign the cast on board before the film can proceed. No word yet on a possible shooting or release schedule.
