When Entourage aired its series finale back in September 2011 after eight seasons of cameo-happy fratboy decadence, it concluded on a dramatic note of ambiguity. Ari Gold promised his wife he would leave Hollywood behind, but in the episode’s closing moments, he was offered his dream job: Becoming CEO of Time Warner. Apparently, he took the offer. EW has confirmed the news, originally reported by Deadline, that Warner Bros. has greenlit an Entourage movie, with the show’s creator Doug Ellin writing and directing the film. Warner Bros. confirmed the Deadline report, which indicates that negotiations are currently underway with the show’s cast, who will almost certainly sign on, because filming an Entourage movie is like being paid to go to a college reunion that lasts three months, and also you went to college with supermodels.
Script details are being kept under wraps at this point, but presumably the film will be about Vince being offered a role in a big movie directed by a to-be-determined famous director – let’s say Steven Spielberg, why not. Eric tries to get Vince a part in the movie, and also has to interact with his famous cameo clients – Daniel Day-Lewis? What are you doing here? – and Sloan is angry at him for some reason. Also, Drama is angling for a bit part in a Viking Quest reboot directed by J.J. Abrams while trying to date Brooklyn Decker, Turtle is launching a line of Turtle™ Brand socks while trying to date Kate Upton, and Ari has lots of memorable dialogue, like “F—ing s—-ing m———-er c——er, f— f— f— f—, Llllooooooyyyyddd!” Plus, turns out everyone is in purgatory.
