Why there is still no ‘Entourage’ movie
It seems the “Entourage” cast members could use some help from someone like superagent Ari Gold.
The movie version of the HBO comedy has been in the works forever, but lots of drama has delayed it from getting off the ground. The latest hold up is due to more heated negotiations, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It turns out Jeremy Piven, who plays Gold, is getting paid a lot more than the rest of the guys, and they’re not happy about it.
So when will this thing happen already?
“As soon as them guys stop being so greedy,” producer Mark Wahlberg told TMZ last week.
Co-star Adrian Grenier had this to say via Instagram a couple of days later.
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 been a while since the show’s finale, but, wow, it looks like someone’s really stayed in character.
