Entourage Movie: Confirmed by Creator

by at . Comments

It's been the worst kept secret in Hollywood, and it was confirmed at The Television Critics Association press tour last night:

"We're going to do a movie," Entourage creator/producer Doug Ellin said. "It's a question of when and how quick."

Mark Wahlberg, the producer on whose life the show is loosely based, has been behind the project for years.

"If I had to finance it myself, I would do it," he said last night. "I certainly hope that this has a chance to become a feature film. People have always complained that the episodes are too short and they want to go on a journey with these guys."

The summer has been a boon for R-rated comedies, from Bridesmaids to Horrible Bosses to Bad Teacher. Wahlberg cites another example, though, for his vision of an Entourage movie: "The Hangover, to me, is very much like Entourage."

Are you excited to see the series on the big screen?
