Finally, an update on the long-discussed Entourage movie: Series creator Doug Ellin is nearly finished with the screenplay for the film - he is specifically, as he tells Deadline, on page 110 and is "gonna finish by Sunday (I pray)." Reportedly the hopes are that it will be greenlit by HBO

The film will take place six months after the end of the series. "There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head," Ellin divulged, "and that’s still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters."

According to Ellin, executive producer of the series Mark Wahlberg has been pressing him to finish the script for ages now, and keeps promising "to kill me if I don’t write faster. Every time I see him, Mark says, ‘I’ve made 5 movies this year. Get going!'"
