It looks we haven't seen the last of Vincent Chase and the boys.
After Warner Bros. green-lit a film version of popular HBO series "Entourage," the project seemed to hit a few snags. But on Monday night, creator Doug Ellin and one of the show's former stars, Jerry Ferrara, confirmed that the movie really is going to happen.
"I am proud to announce the #Entourage movie is a officially a GO," Ferrara, whose character Turtle might arguably be the fan favorite of the crew, tweeted. "Have to thank @wbpictures and @HBO for all the support to make this happen!"
A rep from the studio confirmed the news, and also told CNN that Ellin has written the screenplay and will tackle the directing duties.
When we last saw Turtle, Vinny (Adrian Grenier), Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), "E" (Kevin Connolly) and Ari (Jeremy Piven), there was a lot left to be desired, with the September 2011 series finale pretty much begging for a film follow-up. If "Sex and the City's" Carrie and her girls can get two movies, why not one for the kids from Queens Boulevard?
On Monday, a celebratory Ellin posted a picture of all the fellas with his kids on his Twitter account, writing, "It's a Go. Love you all."
And that wasn't all: For "Entourage" fans who miss seeing the crew, including cast members Emmanuelle Chriqui and Constance Zimmer, Ellin promises that there are more photos to come from him on Instagram as the project moves ahead.
