Last January, fans of the hit HBO series Entourage could be returning as a feature length movie after it’s epic run ended back in 2011. But while star Jeremy Piven recently inked his deal to appear in the movie, Page Six is reporting that as many as three of the main cast members are holding out, thus delaying the film’s production.
A source told us that despite the two-year lead up to production, “They wanted to start filming early this summer, but the cast has been on hold. Jeremy finally signed his contract two weeks ago. His deal closed Aug. 29. But there are other members of the cast, including Adrian Grenier and Jerry Ferrara, who are still holding out.”
A 2014 release date was initially penciled in when the film was announced in 2012 but these recent contractual setbacks make that originally intended release date unlikely.
Producer Mark Walhberg has already expressed frustration in the slow moving process of a film version of the hit show, but expressed thrill over the fact that they finally had a script he thought was great.
It’s highly unlikely that the movie moves forward without it’s biggest stars, so until they come around in contract talks, fans will have to continue to wait for the return of the gang.
