'Entourage' movie gets the green light

The oft-talked about "Entourage" movie was starting to feel more like myth than an actual possibility, but Warner Bros. has given the concept a green light.

As Deadline reports, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin wrote the script for the big screen version of the HBO series, and will also direct the film.

Stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven are in talks to return. (Considering the celebratory photos Grenier and Ellin posted online, we think it's safe to say the former "Entourage" crew is interested in making the movie happen.)

The TV series, which was also executive produced by Ellin along with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson, ran for eight seasons on HBO before drawing to a close in September 2011.  Grenier starred as Vincent Chase, an on-the-rise movie star, with Connolly playing his manager, Eric, and Piven his memorable agent, Ari Gold. Ferrara was his close friend, Turtle, and Dillon his struggling actor brother, Johnny Drama.

The series finale left room for a follow-up, as Ari was offered the opportunity to be the Chairman and CEO of a movie studio. As noted in a recap, that ending left viewers wondering "whether Ari will head back to L.A. for another shot at building the empire he dreams of," a question that could certainly be part of the movie.

Details are still slim, and there isn't a start date yet. But nevertheless, the movie seems surely on the way - maybe now Grenier won't have to keep consoling those forlorn fans.

    Worst show ever about superficial jerks who are completly consumed with themselves I cant believe a show like this ran for 8 seasons and a show like Deadwood gets cancelled after 3! Safe to say I will not be seeing this movie.

      Good. We don't need idiots like you seeing it. Sorry, it's a 24 minute sitcom that allows people to escape their mediocre lives and imagine they are living with these characters who live the lives we all wish we had.

      Go back to re-watching episodes of Deadwood.

    I'm no fashion expert, but, does that purple tie & blue shirt go together?

      Gosh – it doesn't really go together but I kind of like it for some reason.
