When Movie Fanatic visited the set of the Entourage movie earlier this year, it was impressive.
We’ve been on many movie sets, but there was something about this one that was truly like a well oiled machine. It occurred to us while watching the guys get filmed by writer-director Doug Ellin that there was no way this movie needed to wait until June of 2015 to come out. We’re not alone.
Mark Wahlberg (who co-created the show and acts as executive producer) was talking to Access Hollywood at the Hong Kong premiere of his latest film, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and he reflected the urge to get this Entourage movie out earlier.
“I don’t think we’re going to be able to wait a year to release the movie. We’re going to show the studio sooner, rather than later,” Wahlberg told Access Hollywood. “If it makes the most sense to wait until June, we’ll wait until June.”
And given Wahlberg’s excitement for the project, it’s also hardly a surprise that he is getting Ellin busy on thinking of a follow-up film for the four boys of Entourage.
“I told [writer-director Doug Ellin], ‘Let’s not wait for the movie to come out to start planning the next one because this is definitely going to be a big success.’ If I have anything to do with it there will be,” Wahlberg said.
