Briefly: Now that the drama is over, Drama is finally back. Entourage creator Doug Ellin tweeted what several of his stars had been saying over the weekend. All deals have been signed and the movie version of the hit Hollywood-based HBO show is finally a go.
Vince (Adrian Grenier), E (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and, yes, Drama (Kevin Dillon) will all now receive backend deals on the $30 million film.

Get the details after the jump.
