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 »

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.
Below, check out some Entourage set photos. Read More »
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.

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]

For a while there, the Entourage movie was starting to look a bit iffy. Warner Bros. had greenlit the sequel, but then there was a whole bunch of drama about who was getting paid what. Ultimately, though, the studio was able to wrangle together all six principal cast members with an eye toward shooting in January 2014.
Now that month has finally rolled around, and the actors are indeed ready to work. Hit the jump to check out a couple of behind-the-scenes images of Vince and his boys, reunited once more.

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. Filming will start as planned in January once Jeremy Piven (whose original deal started all the problems) finishes filming his PBS show, Mr. Selfridge. Cue the Jane’s Addiction. [Twitter, Deadline]

Entourage went off the air two years ago, but earlier this year fans got a glimmer of hope that they’d see Vince and company continue their adventures on the big screen. Warner Bros. announced the green light for a feature film sequel, which would begin shooting in May.
