There have been rumors of an Entourage movie happening since the show went off the air on HBO, but so far nothing has come of it. Despite having a script that Mark Wahlberg apparently approves of and all the original cast on board for the picture, the movie has found itself at a standstill for the past few years, and fans really haven’t known why.
Rumors of payment issues have been at the heart of the frustration and actor Adrian Grenier went out of his way to talk directly to fans of the show to sort things out. Grenier confirmed that pay is the main issue holding the movie back but not in the traditional sense. The actor states that nothing is going to happen until every main member of the cast is paid equally.
Grenier posted a message on his Instagram account addressing the production issues and the “spirit of Entourage”:
To all Entourage fans. I owe it to you to make a couple things clear. I take my role as Vince on the show & off very seriously. All decisions I make personally & for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. It has, & never will be about the money for me. I promise. I will always stand up for the boys (that includes you) & do what I can to make sure they are treated fairly, and not be taken advantage of by anybody. The spirit of Entourage is about sharing the opportunities given to us and I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY. I assure you, despite the perception, there is no greed in my heart. Remember, it will all work out in the end. It always does. —— I will try to answer questions with hashtag#entourageboysshare
It’s highly unlikely that a film comes out before 2015, but fans aren’t giving up on seeing their favorite characters returning one more time. If the movie doesn’t happen though, at least we know that all the cast members went down swinging, fighting for what they thought was right — and if that isn’t Entourage than we don’t know what is.
