Doug Ellin Nearly Finished with ENTOURAGE Movie Script; Film Picks Up 6 Months After Series Ended

For anyone still itching to see an Entourage movie, the film just became a bit more of a reality.  Series creator Doug Ellin recently revealed that he’s on page 110 of the screenplay and he’s nearly finished.  The movie will pick up six months after the show’s series finale left off, with Ari (Jeremy Piven) now a fully-fledge studio head and Vince (Adrien Grenier) hours away from some impending nuputuals.  Ellin notes that Ari’s studio head status was “page one” for him, but the film also focuses on Vince and his crew “still hanging out and going to fun parties.”  Who needs character development anyway, eh?  Hit the jump for more.

The quality of Entourage tapered off greatly after the first couple of seasons and I find it hard to see how a feature film is necessary/enticing.

Ellin’s assurance that the movie will still see the characters “hanging out and going to fun parties” is a bit depressing, since that’s exactly what they did for the duration of the series.  That said, the show does seem to have its fans and I’m sure they’re eager to spend a couple more hours with Vince and the gang.
