Bad news, Entourage fans: The movie is delayed. Filming was set to begin in May of this year, but for the past few months, cast members have been holding out for more money. The main two culprits are allegedly Adrian Grenier (which, okay, makes sense, he was the star of the show) and... Jerry Ferrara.
From the New York Post:
The long-awaited film based on the hit HBO show was due to go into production in May, but it’s been on hold while producers try to agree on deals with key members of the cast, Page Six has exclusively learned.
A source told us that despite the two-year lead up to production, “They wanted to start filming early this summer, but the cast has been on hold. Jeremy finally signed his contract two weeks ago. His deal closed Aug. 29. But there are other members of the cast, including Adrian Grenier and Jerry Ferrara, who are still holding out.”
The “Entourage” movie was announced in January 2012. In January of this year, producer Mark Wahlberg confirmed the script was completed and they planned to go into production in May.
The film was originally scheduled to arrive in theaters in April or May 2014. Now, who knows?
