HBO's crowd-pleasing Entourage has been aiming for big screen treatment for a while now, but rows over pay and contractual obligations have muddied the waters.
slammed - but did not name - co-stars for being money hungry, whilst also highlighting the cash-cow Hollywood process, telling TMZ that the Entourage movie would happen,
As soon as them guys stop being so greedy. If the movie's a success, we'll get to make a lot more of them and then we'll probably make a lot of money.
Not exactly an inspiring statement of artistic intent, but we have to be realistic, I suppose. Entourage star (Vincent Chase) was keen to deny any Scrooge McDuck gold-diving, taking to his Instagram with this message:
I take my role as Vince on the show and off very seriously. All decisions I make personally and for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. It has, and never will be about the money for me. I promise.
However, TMZ also spoke to (Eric 'E' Murphy), who unofficially confirmed that production for Entourage: The Movie would begin in January:
Yeah, it's gonna happen. There are no contracts yet, it doesn't work that way. Everybody's in line.
We'll have to wait for the proper announcement that Grenier is on board, but with Connolly and (Ari Gold) signed up and series creator set to write and direct, the project is looking promising for fans of the show.
In summary, Mark Wahlberg said Entourage stars were being greedy: Grenier denies said greed. The Entourage movie is shooting in January. What do you think?
