Coming Soon: “Entourage: The Movie”
“I think a 90-minute movie of sheer craziness — the guys getting back to just being about the guys, you know?”[HP]
Douche bags of the world, rejoice! Your favorite band of hedonistic narcissists from HBO’s Entourage are finally making their way to the big screen a la those four romantically constipated middle aged women from Sex and the City. Do TV shows make for good movies? I would say no, but they certainly do make a lot of money. Just ask Spongebob.
No official date has been set for filming to commence, much less an actual release date, but there are a few ideas floating around about what the story might be about (as if that’s why people got hooked on the show in the first place). Jeremy Piven said last year, “We’re teed up for a movie in a way that, you know, Ari has this conundrum that he’s facing, which is either to rule the world or to honor his love to his wife.”
In these situations, the wife never wins. But are you going to see it when it comes out? Are you all: “Entourage? That’s so 2010!”
