For fans of the hugely popular TV Show Entourage, rumours about their favourite fictional characters Vince, Johnny, Eric, Turtle and Ari Gold heading to the big screen have been circling for years now. However, according to Deadline, the script for a feature film version has now been given the official green light from Warner Bros. and the series is set to live on with a film adaptation.
Series creator Doug Ellin (Grudge Match) will direct the big screen version of the show, which focused on the exploits of the up and coming film star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), his agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), his under-appreciated TV actor brother Johnny “Drama” Chase (Kevin Dillon) and his childhood friend Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), who all form his inner circle.
HBO have a history of transferring hit TV shows to the big screen, with Sex and the City making the transition to a successful feature film, which even led to a sequel. No doubt there will be a host of Hollywood names attached to star in the big screen adaptation of Entourage, with the TV show featuring cameos from the world of music and film with the likes of Kanye West, James Cameron and Matt Damon all playing themselves.
Entourage ran for eight seasons on HBO where it gained a cult following so this feature film announcement will surely come as fantastic news to fans of the TV show.
