Mark Wahlberg talks about 'Entourage' movie possibility
Although the "Entourage" series finale aired recently, fans might not have to go too long before seeing Vincent Chase and the gang again.
Series executive producer Mark Wahlberg told People magazine, "We're working on [a movie] as we speak."
The series ended its run on September 11 after eight seasons. The final scene showed Ari (played by Jeremy Piven) receiving a phone call with an offer to run a movie studio after he decided to retire from the entertainment business and move to Italy.
"The dream job he got offered is too good to pass up," Wahlberg told the magazine about the character's offer.
The actor later spoke with Extra about the possibility of a movie at the Emmy Awards on Sunday saying, "The guys are going to have to go back to where it started. We've been talking about the movie non-stop. That's the goal."
The show was not nominated for an Emmy Award this year but Piven won three Emmy awards in 2006, 2007 and 2008 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in Comedy Series for his work on the series.
Series star Adrian Grenier, who played Chase on the series talked in July about filming the finale and called the moment "touching." He added, "Everyone was so sweet. It actually felt like the last day of school. It was hard to keep people focused. It was funny because the grown men on set were acting like children. Poor David Nutter [director] was trying to get everyone's attention and get people to finish a scene, but when the end of school is near, it's hard to really get people to do anything."
The actor said the series ended "with a smirk and a little bit of a wink and the knowing look that it's not over necessarily. It's only just a new beginning. I'm looking forward to what's next."
