Good news for fans of Mark Wahlberg and his hit television show, HBO’s Entourage: There’s talk of an Entourage movie spin-off coming to theaters near us, and all the big stars are reportedly being courted as we speak to reprise their signature roles. If you miss the bro hugs, Tequila chugs and unabashed one-night stands as much as I do, you might be in luck. If you ask me, an Entourage movie can’t be given the green light soon enough.
According to Deadline, all the familiar faces are in discussions about signing on to an Entourage movie, even the fantastic Floyd and sensational Sloan:
The film will be directed by series creator Doug Ellin, who wrote the screenplay and who exec produced the series with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. Deals are starting to be made with Adrian Grenier, who played Chase, Kevin Connolly, who played his manager Eric “E” Murphy, Kevin Dillon, who played the actor’s brother Johnny Drama, Jerry Ferrara, who played their entrepreneurial driver Turtle, and Jeremy Piven, who played the show’s iconic type A talent agent Ari Gold. I’m sure Drama’s agent Lloyd (Rex Lee), E’s girl Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui), his management partner Scott (Scott Caan), and their quirky director collaborator Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro) and Ari’s agency partner Barbara Miller (Beverly D’Angelo) will all be in the mix, along with a swarm of real Hollywood talent, playing themselves.
Back in March, Adrien Grenier seemed hopeful that one such cameo could include President Barack Obama, though there’s still no official word from either camp on whether this will happen for sure. It would be a bold choice for the POTUS–this isn’t exactly good clean family fun–but hey, he’s secured his second term, so why not?
Either way, serious star power would likely clamor for the chance to play themselves in an Entourage movie. It certainly worked for Bob Saget.
