As a man who moved from New York to Los Angeles with dreams of Hollywood glory in my head, today is a great day. Warner Bros. has given to the green light to the movie version of Entourage, the HBO series that ran from 2004-2011. Mark Wahlberg executive produced the show based on his own life.
The show starred Adrian Grenier as Vinnie Chase, a popular actor who brought his three childhood friends E (Kevin Connolly), Drama (Kevin Dillon) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) to Los Angeles to ride the wave of stardom and pal around with his agent Ari (Jeremy Piven).
Doug Ellin, who created the series, will write and direct the film. The movie doesn’t have a start date at this point. Read More »

The new television season isn’t quite upon us yet, but the networks have definitely started gearing up. HBO’s just released an extended trailer for the eighth (and last) season of its escapist Hollywood fantasy Entourage, set to premiere in two weeks.
[UPDATE: Sadly, it turns out that the Walking Dead video posted below is fan-made and not an official teaser.

Watch both trailers after the jump.

HBO’s hit series Entourage has been renewed for a sixth season, which will begin production in early 2009 for a Summer debut. I haven’t had the chance to catch up on this season of the show yet. Has Entourage lost it’s spark or is it better than ever?
A couple years ago Alex Merkin made a short film called Across the Hall, which ran the film festival circuit. Entourage‘s Adrian Grenier starred, and festival-goers compared the Merkin short to a modern day Hitchcock flim. On February 6th Merkin will go into production on an expanded feature length version of the film noir thriller starring Mike Vogel (Cloverfield), Brittany Murphy and Danny Pino (Cold Case). But if you have a few minutes, check out Merkin’s brilliant original 16 minute short film at the links below:
