Warner Bros. is bringing back Drama, Turtle, E, Vince and Ari for the big screen.
The studio has given “Entourage” mastermind Doug Ellin the green light to write and direct a big screen feature about movie star Vincent Chase, his agent, his manager, his TV star brother and the fat guy who leeches off him.
The TV version of "Entourage" reached its apex perhaps when it cast Rainn Wilson as online journalist R.J. Spencer, a thinly disguised version of Harry Knowles who threatened to destroy the prospects of James Cameron’s “Aquaman” (starring Chase) as handily as Harry’s Ain’t It Cool destroyed the prospects of Joel Schumacher’s “Batman & Robin.”
During its run on HBO from July 2004 to September 2011, "Entourage" was always the Los Angeles male-fantasy counterpart to HBO’s New York female-fantasy “Sex in the City” -- and the first “Sex” movie spilled a ton of cash into the Time Warner vaults.
When we last left Vince’s agent Ari Gold, he had quit running his powerful talent agency to spend more time with his wife – at least until he took a phone call offering the chance to run a movie studio. We never saw Ari's answer.
How long after the events of the TV series does this take place? No one can say, but I hope the all these Sunday-night characters ended up in more interesting places than where we left them.
Watch the video I posted above and tell me you're not looking forward to this.
