According to E! Online, it may take a little longer than expected for the Entourage movie to hit theaters. PopWrapped reported months ago that there were rumors circulating about a possible movie from the highly popular television series; and that production was supposed to start in May. So, why the delay?
Most sources say that Entourage star Jeremy Piven, who played fan-favorite Ari Gold, has already signed his contract. However, other stars of the would-be Entourage movie (like Vince and Turtle, played by Adrian Grenier and Jeremy Ferrara, respectively) have reportedly been demanding more money than Warner Bros. is willing to pay.
According to the Huffington Post, director Doug Ellin is not too enthusiastic on the film’s progress, and has taken to twitter (@nrdougellin) to voice his concerns. Ellin even went so far as to tell one fan that the Entourage movie is becoming less and less likely everyday.
Negotiations are reportedly underway, and production will be soon to follow. Whether or not the film will pick up on the show’s cliff hangers, or even some of its more racy aspects, is unknown. Reportedly a “perfect” script has already been penned, and the only thing delaying the movie is the actors.
However, as of this morning (September 13) a source informed E! News that, “Reports that Adrian is stalling the Entourage movie couldn’t be further from the truth.Adrian is personally really excited about making the movie and everyone involved is really happy with the way things are going. There is no stall, although there are definitely still negotiations going on. The negotiations are almost complete and will get done shortly. He wanted this movie to happen from day one, and it took a while to a script that everyone is really happy with—the cast and studio included. He is looking forward to shooting the movie and he is confident that it is going to happen.”
E! was unable to contact Grenier’s representative for comment.
