Whether the world will even still want an Entourage movie by the time it gets made is up for debate, but the reason it hasn’t gotten one yet is pretty clear. Although Warner Bros. greenlit the project back in January, report after report has indicated that the cast isn’t so thrilled with the salaries being offered. Or rather, most of the cast isn’t.
According to a new story, Jeremy Piven is being compensated handsomely for his involvement in the movie. This is proving an issue because he’s getting paid so much, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, and Kevin Dillon are upset that they aren’t making as much as he is. Get the details after the jump.

A long time ago, Entourage series creator Doug Ellin finished the script for a movie based on his hit HBO show. Warner Bros. gave him the green light in January and almost all of his cast signed on, including Jeremy Piven and Kevin Connolly. Months then passed with no update until several people reported that Adrian Grenier and Jerry Ferrara, who played Vince and Turtle, wanted more money. That was the hold up.
Now, producer Mark Wahlberg seemingly confirmed that by saying the movie would happen “As soon as them guys stop being so greedy.” He didn’t name names, but Grenier seemed to own up to it. He took to his Instagram to release a statement about the Entourage film. Read it below. Read More »

It wasn’t long after Friday Night Lights concluded its fifth and final season in 2011 that word spread of a possible movie sequel. But despite the active interest of series creator Peter Berg, producer Brian Grazer, and stars including Connie Britton and Adrianne Palicki, actual progress has been mysteriously slow. Now we know why.
According to Britton, Kyle Chandler has no interest in reprising his role. That’s a pretty big hurdle, seeing as his Coach Eric Taylor is the main character. Hit the jump to read her comments.

Briefly: Few men can fill the shoes of Lee Majors but one who comes close is Dwayne Johnson. The actor formerly known has The Rock is in talks to star in a remake of the Eighties TV show The Fall Guy, with McG (Charlie’s Angels) behind the camera.
Majors starred in the original TV show which followed a Hollywood stuntman who used what he did in the movies to be a bounty hunter. It’s a project that’s been kicking around Hollywood for several years and is now being shopped around by Hyde Park Entertainment and WWE Studios. Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller wrote the latest draft, which breathed new life into the franchise. [The Hollywood Reporter]
Briefly: While Jared Harris may be best known for his role as Lane Pryce on Mad Men, Guy Ritchie turned to the actor when it was time to bring the evil Moriarty to life in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Now Ritchie and Harris will work together again, on Ritche’s new version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Read More »
It amazes me that there are so many fans of great TV, and so many fans of Idris Elba, yet so few people have heard of or watched Luther. The BBC show, created by Neil Cross, follows a dangerously determined police detective who gets much too involved in his investigations. Eventually his already questionable morality reaches a breaking point when he’s forced to work with a woman he knows, but can’t prove, is a killer.
The first two seasons of the show are currently on Netflix and the third, which aired this summer, will be released on Blu-ray next month. Though it might sound like every other cop show out there, it’s much more character-driven and cinematic. It’s highly recommended.
For those who have seen the show, the fact that the third season is the end is obviously a disappointment. Elba and Cross feel your pain and are hoping to bring the show to the big screen. Cross has written a prequel script that he’s hoping to shoot next year. Read More »
