A large red bow sits besides a space-age looking black Cadillac Ciel in the driveway of a Palos Verdes, CA beach house. Seating inside this elaborate and expensive gift are four friends, once again united by the powers that be. A camera hanging out of a large matte black Mercedes SUV is fixed on the wheel of the car, then slowly pulls back as the group speeds up the driveway. In our head, we might imagine Superhero by Jane’s Addiction playing. But on March 17, 2014, the 18th day out of 35 in the filming of Entourage, things are as quiet as a pin drop.
The four friends in the car are Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier), Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara). Four years have passed since the conclusion of the HBO show of the same name. Now creator Doug Ellin is finally bringing Entourage to the big screen. That in itself might be a feat, but being on set, the bigger feat is the atmosphere, which is incredibly loose, friendly and collaborative. This isn’t like any film set I’ve ever been on. It’s way more laid back, way more funny and very much in the familial spirit of a group of people – both in front of and behind the camera – coming back to a world they love.
Below, read about our Entourage movie set visit. Read More »

When Saban and Lionsgate announced development of a Power Rangers movie it was a notable bit of development, as the property has plenty of active fans. But that was before Joseph Kahn’s short film Power/Rangers went online. That short blew the ’90s TV property (which has enjoyed continuous production through to the present) into the stratosphere.
But we know that Kahn isn’t in the running to make the Lionsgate feature, and isn’t interested in the gig regardless. But there’s a director almost set. Dean Israelite, whose film Project Almanac was released early this year after a couple delays, is in talks to be the Power Rangers director. Read More »
