Deadline reports the latest installment in Hollywood’s continued practice of letting no television property lie: Entourage, which concluded its run on HBO last year, has seen its screenplay completed by creator Doug Ellin. “Foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters,” says Mr. Ellin; the film is pending HBO executives reading the script and deals being made with the stars, including Adrian Grenier, who played a movie star on Entourage and may yet become one in real life!
Nikki Finke weighs in: “Certainly Entourage had its ups and downs quality-wise. I was mixed in my assessment over the years, alternately castigating it for not showing the down and dirty Hollywood, and occasionally praising it for less predictability and more realism.” She notes that Mr. Ellin has offered her a cameo role, an offer that the reclusive blogger would be unlikely to take up.
