Promises Of An Entourage Movie Heat Up As The Final Season Begins

Entourage creator Doug Ellin fired up fans of his show starring Adrian Grenier at the Television Critics Press Tour yesterday by making a promise he may not be able to keep.
As HBO's Entourage enters its final season, Ellin told members of the press "we're going to do a movie." There's no story or timetable yet, but he's fully committed to ensuring it happens.

Series executive producer Mark Wahlberg and star Jeremy Piven agreed that they'd like to see a film as well. Added Wahlberg, "I certainly hope it has a chance to bcome a feature film." He even backed up a previous claim that if he had to finance the film himself to get it done, then that's what he'd do.

Many pieces have to fall into place before an Entourage movie can happen. The ensemble cast will each find work on new projects after appearing together for potentially the last time for the press tour. Pulling them all back together for a film will require aligning of many schedules.

But with the final season of Entourage now airing on HBO, the movie rumors are flying faster than ever, and have moved up to the person who actually has the power to make it happen, namely creator and executive producer Doug Ellin. During the TCA press tour, that week where the creators of every show gather with every television critic in the country to be barraged with questions, both Wahlberg and Ellin sounded very confident about the possibility of a movie. "If I had to finance it myself, I would do it," Wahlberg said-- and that's no empty promise, considering he could probably actually do that. And here's what Ellis had to say:

"We’re going to do a movie. We’re going to do it, the question is when and how quickly. Hopefully we'll come down with an idea and make it happen."

I like how Ellin says they'll "come down" with an idea, as if it's the flu or a nasty STD. Either way, their enthusiasm shouldn't be mistaken for actual plans-- this is the strong face they present to critics as they promote the final season of their show, and it may not bear any resemblance to financial or creative reality. If an Entourage movie is going to happen, it ought to happen now, so who knows-- we may not be done with Vincent Chase after all until we see him up on the big screen.
