'Entourage' Movie Gets Greenlight (Perhaps You've Heard the Term in 'Entourage')

Nobly sustaining Adrian Grenier's acting career, just as Grenier sustains the similarly-squashed wine grape, Warner has given a greenlight to subsidiary HBO to go ahead on a film version of Entourage.

Series creator Doug Ellin will reportedly make the film his big-screen directorial follow-up to 1998's David Schwimmer-Jason Lee comedy Kissing a Fool (that being his follow-up to Coolio's Phat Beach, naturally), and he's already filled a script with enough cool hang-outs and Hollywood things to get started. The studio is now working on deals with the actors, and Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, and the rest of the cast are expected to return, because can you think of any reason at all they wouldn't? There will also supposedly be "a swarm of real Hollywood talent, playing themselves," so expect at least some Mark Wahlberg.

Deadline doesn't have any further details on the project, but note that the sequel-conducive success of the Sex and the City movie likely bodes well for Entourage. Plus, if HBO can encourage similar "gather your closest friends, share a nice bottle of pinot, and see it opening night" behavior, maybe Grenier can snag a little of that sweet wine money, too.
