The Entourage bad boys are almost back. Exactly one year ago, the HBO series ended its eighth and final season with soap opera schmaltz but also a Hollywood cliffhanger: agent Ari Gold as a newly minted studio mogul. That obviously set up the movie which Entourage creator Doug Ellin wanted to write one day. Well, I can now report thats sooner rather than later: Ellin is on page 110 of his screenplay and gonna finish by Sunday (I pray), he emails me. Ellin notes that no one wants to see the movie greenlighted by HBO more than the series WME packaging agent Ari Emanuel (the prototype for Gold) and executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Steven Levinson. Ellin says that Wahlberg keeps promising to kill me if I dont write faster. Every time I see him, Mark says, Ive made 5 movies this year. Get going!
Probably won't go to the theatre for it. I'll definitely be on the lookout for a good copy online, though.
