Kate Upton is reportedly joining the cast of the upcoming Entourage movie.

The 21-year-old American model is said to be in advanced talks with producers to play the female lead in the film version of the hugely successful HBO series.

Sources at Warner Brothers have told The Wrap that Upton would most likely play Vincent Chase's (Adrian Grenier) love interest.

Grenier and his castmates, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven, have all now signed on the dotted line, despite earlier reports that they were holding back over a salary dispute. 

However, Ferrara recently insisted that the cast were not to blame for holding up the long-awaited movie.

Entourage originally aired for eight seasons between 2004 and 2011 on HBO, and earned 25 Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

The show's creator Doug Ellin confirmed the movie news last month on Twitter.
