Filming has finally started on the much-anticipated film version of HBO comedy Entourage.
The movie reunites the show’s original cast, led by Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven. Also starring are Billy Bob Thornton and Haley Joel Osment as father and son, Larsen and Travis McCredle.
Hollywood movie star Vincent Chase (Grenier) is back with his boyhood pals from Queens, Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) and Johnny (Dillon) and still in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Piven).
Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood – which is a far cry from their roots in working-class Queens.
Entourage creator Doug Ellin is directing the film from his own screenplay. Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Ellin are producing, with Wayne Carmona serving as executive producer.
Returning cast from the series also includes Perrey Reeves as Ari Gold’s wife, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Sloan and Rhys Coiro as Billy Walsh.
