EW has confirmed that Billy Bob Thornton is in talks to join Warner Bros.’ upcoming film adaption of the hit HBO series, Entourage.
The film reunites Entourage stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon, and Jeremy Piven, and continues to follow the Hollywood adventures of Vinnie Chase (Grenier) and his crew.
Thornton would play a billionaire cowboy-turned-film financier who sends his twenty-something son to keep an eye on things on set of the latest flick he’s financing, which happens to be Vinnie’s upcoming big-budget Dracula movie.
Entourage is currently shooting around Los Angeles and is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2015. The Hollywood Reporter first reported Thornton’s involvement.
