The long awaited big screen continuation of the HBO series Entourage is still a year away from being released, but producer Mark Wahlberg is already thinking about a sequel. During the press junket for Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Wahlberg revealed that he’s seen a cut of the Entourage Movie and is keen for the studio to release it earlier than planned.
“There’s so much humor and heart in it and [director] Doug [Ellin] just did an amazing job. I don’t think we’re going to be able to wait a year to release the movie. We’re going to show the studio sooner, rather than later. If it makes most sense to wait until June, we’ll wait until June.
I told Doug, ‘Let’s not wait for the movie to come out to start planning the next one because this is definitely going to be a big success,’” he said. “If I have anything to do with it there will be.”
Currently the summer release schedule for Warner Bros isn’t looking as strong as other studios, May through August sees the arrival of the delayed Mad Max: Fury Road, Dwayne Johnson in San Andreas, Magic Mike 2 and the Point Break Remake. There’s still titles to be confirmed but at this stage you could argue that Warner Bros needs Entourage in its existing June release slot. That said, it is going up against Jurassic World which is almost certainly going to take first place over the opening weekend so we may well see a slight release date shuffle.
The Entourage movie catches up with the gang as Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) embarks on a new chapter in his career and undertakes his directorial debut. As usual Vinnie will be supported by his trusty crew, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillion and Jeremy Piven all reprise their roles alongside a host of surprise cameos.
