The script for a feature film version completed last September, Entourage is now officially headed to the big screen, Deadline reports. Warner Bros. has given the green light to the continuation of the hit HBO series.
The film is said to pick up the action six months after the end of the series, which saw Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold taking a job with a major studio.
Series creator Doug Ellin will direct the big screen version and, while deals have yet to be signed, the full cast of the show is expected to be returning.
There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head,” Ellin said last year, “and thats still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters.
“Entourage” ran for eight seasons on HBO between 2004 and 2011.
