Entourage Movie header

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.

Vincent Chase and the boys from Queens are back in the second Entourage trailer. The film, written and directed by show creator Doug Ellin, opens June 5. It brings back to the screen the entire original cast including, but not limited to Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.

This time, Ari Gold (Piven) is running his own studio and his first big bet is on Vince (Grenier). Vince not only wants to star in his own movie, he wants to direct it. That film is called Hyde, a modern take on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, and it’ll make or break the long-time friends. Will things work out? Check out the new Entourage trailer – which is chock full of cameos – for a glimpse. Read More »

Bad Santa 2

Bad Santa 2 has been discussed for years, despite the fact that original writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa have moved on to their own directing career and there’s no indication that original director Terry Zwigoff will return. Rather, Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink was linked to the film, both as writer and director, then Doug Ellin (Entourage) was said to be a potential writer/director. Now star Billy Bob Thornton says the project is still developing. Read More »

Entourage

Most of next summer’s big releases are still filming. One, however, is already done. That’s Entourage, the film version of the hit HBO show executive produced by Mark Wahlberg. Writer, director and creator Doug Ellin finished principal photography a few weeks back and just screened a rough cut for the actor. Seems that Wahlberg loved it. A good surprise is just how much he loved it. Wahlberg said the film is so good, he thinks it might be worth releasing before its planned June 2015 release date, and that Ellin should start thinking about a sequel. Read More »

The Entourage movie doesn’t open for 15 months, but production is well underway. In fact, the film opens on the same day as Jurassic World, and Entourage will be in the can before director Colin Trevorrow shoots a foot of film on the dinosaur sequel.

The writer and director of Entourage, Doug Ellin, has been doing a pretty amazing job documenting the production via Instagram. He’s put up plenty of images of his principal cast – Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven – but also revealed a slew of cameos and plenty of returning stars who played key roles in the eight seasons of the hit HBO show.

Briefly: The Entourage movie is finally filming and, as fans of the show know, Ari Gold’s (Jeremy Piven) old assistant Lloyd (Rex Lee) has long been an agent. That leaves an opening and, Deadline reports, that role will be filled by none other than Kid Cudi, also known as Scott Mescudi. Mescudi will next appear in Need for Speed alongside Aaron Paul.

Haley Joel Osment Roped in to ‘Entourage’

Entourage header

Briefly: Here’s a curious piece of casting. Haley Joel Osment has joined the cast of the currently-shooting Entourage movie, written and directed by Doug Ellin. Osment, however, won’t be playing himself, which would have made sense in that wacky world. Instead he’s playing Travis McCree, the son of Billy Bob Thorton‘s character Larsen McCree, who is paying for Vince’s (Adrian Grenier) new movie. Travis is sent to oversee everything and gets a little too caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle. The film doesn’t have a release date, but late 2014 or early 2015 is likely. [Deadline]
