The team behind HBO’s Entourage reiterated their commitment to continuing the show as a movie.
“We’re going to do a movie,” said creator Doug Ellin at the TV critics press tour. “We’re going to do it. It’s a question of when and how quick. We’ll sit down and come up with an idea.”
Exec producer Mark Wahlberg was also bullish on the prospect: “Well, I said if I had to finance myself, I’d do it. I certainly hope it has a chance to bcome a feature film, everybody always says the episodes are too short. [Viewers] want to go on a journey. The Hangover to me is like Entourage.”
Agreed Jeremy Piven: “I think [the final season] is a gratifying way to finish, yet I also feel we could transition into a movie.”
The cast and producers said their appearance at the Beverly Hilton will represent the last time they’ll all be together for Entourage as a TV show.
“We’re all choked up,” said Adrian Grenier about the parting. “We’ve been together for eight years. We’ve spent countless hours creating something were very proud of. It’s sad to say goodbye to each other and to what we created. We know we’ll always be connected on some level.”
Added Kevin Connolly, “I don’t want to start crying.”
