'Entourage' script in the works: What should it be about? And what should they avoid?

You haven’t hugged it out (b*tch) until you’ve hugged it out at the multiplex. Luckily, for fans of Entourage, they’ll likely get to do just that. While there’s been word for some time that the HBO series would be adapted for the big screen — the series’ executive producer/occasional guest star/inspiration Mark Wahlberg told EW back in December that he wanted an Entourage movie to happen — it now seems the show’s writer and producer Doug Ellin is moving in that direction.

Ellin told The Hollywood Reporter at the New York City premiere for the eighth and final season of Entourage that he does, in fact, have a script in the works (Ellin’s reps told EW they had “no comment” regarding the news) while Emmanuelle Chriqui (E’s lady Sloan) revealed to Fox & Friends that, “Nothing is definitive but it’s not just a rumor anymore.”

Since details are pretty mum thus far for the in-its-early-stages project, we had some ideas of our own. While the show always worked best on smaller scale episodes that revolved around a single plot line, like season 3’s classics “One Day in the Valley” and “The Return of the King,” an entire two-hour flick revolving around one day likely wouldn’t work. Instead, they could have the whole gang do some globetrotting (I vote Austraaaaaaalia) and hitting up go-to Hollywood events (Cannes has been covered, but there’s still SXSW!) When the gals from Sex and the City traveled to lavish locales for their flicks, it didn’t make much sense at all (NYC is one of their characters, after all), but with Entourage you most certainly can take the boys out of their city. Plus, Entourage, if nothing else, is reliable. Vincent is stubborn, E is a romantic, Turtle is gainfully unemployed, Drama is a punchline and Ari is shouting, so why not just have the characters stay the same, but put them in fantastic places?

If that’s the case, hopefully they’ll bring back some of the show’s equally reliable guest stars like Seth Green, Rhys Coiro, Constance Zimmer, Mandy Moore, Malcolm McDowell. But, please, please, no Bow Wow.

Or, should they just stick to the loose time line of Wahlberg’s life and career? As he told EW, “My story didn’t end in my 20s” (Though maybe they should skip the whole part about The Happening. On second thought, maybe not. Twist!) In which case, we’d get to see Vinny Chase snag an Oscar nomination, or star in a boxing movie, or become a dad, or have a hilarious SNL skit about him talking to animals.

I’m curious PopWatchers, what do you think the Entourage movie should be about? Should they stick with their usual M.O. from the show or go really far out there with it (i.e. Vincent ditches acting and becomes a rock star, Ari takes a vow of silence, Turtle gets a real job)? Tell us in the comments section below.

The final season of Entourage begins this Sunday, July 24, at 10 p.m. on HBO.

  • UGH

    I’d rather see THE WIRE:THE MOVIE.

    • Karen

      AMEN!!!!

    • Jane Freud

      They should base it on that episode where they all do and say the same thing as every other episode in every season of Entourage. Yeah, that one!

  • Thom

    It should definitely involve the guys asking E, “How’s it going with Sloan?”
    And then Vince tells the guys to lay off of him, which leads to Drama talking about his role as the school heartthrob on Step By Step, which Turtle then mocks him for.

    So basically, it should be like every episode of the show… or else.

    • Mr. Holloway

      I’m a fan of the show, but your comment made me laugh out loud.

      What you described literally happens in every other episode.

  • Lee

    I’d rather see a Flight of The Conchords movie.

    Or a Curb Your Enthusiasm movie. Or a Larry Sanders movie. Or a Life and Times of Tim movie. Or a Dream On movie. Pretty much any HBO comedy over Entourage.

    • homerox13

      I’ll second that…it still irks me that we get not one but TWO “Sex & The City” movies (and maybe a 3rd??), and now an “Entourage” movie, but “Deadwood” will never get the movie finale it deserves.

    • Stormy

      Or a Gilmore Girls movie.

  • Monty

    Suppose this season ends on a high note with Vince getting back on track career wise. It would be interesting if they opened the movie with Vince being nominated for an oscar for his latest performance (which in an art-imitating-life turn, features Vince as an active/recovering addict). They do the whole lead up to the oscars, with the parade of guest stars at the ceremony, Vince looses the oscar but is still happy because they end with a big after-oscars party. Fill the middle with cool toys, hot girls, and a trip to an exotic location. Done!

    • Mr. Holloway

      I was actually thinking about a story along these same lines.

      We’ve seen the show tackle Cannes, Sundance, Comic Con, but it’s never really tackled the Oscars and the insanity that goes along with it. (It’s not hard to imagine Ari’s machinations.)

      No one things Adrian Grenier is the best actor in the world, but apparently Vinny Chase is supposed to be pretty good, so it’d make sense for him to finally get some awards love.

  • Jason

    It should be about all the characters dying.

  • Mike

    Yeah…very bizarre to speculate on what the movie should be able before knowing how the TV Series ends. Then again, since the show doesn’t really have a plot (doesn’t stop me from enjoying for some reason) I guess there’s no harm done!

    • Mike

      able –> about

  • dean shull

    We need to see a young actor portray the young Vinny Chase as a young rapper ala Marky Mark back in the day, with a similar classic scene as the rap Top That, from the movie Teen Witch. Youtube it… classic.

  • Jerry

    Where’s my Arliss movie?

  • brian vaughn

    Eric and Sloan get divorced. Eric kills himself. Vince is so distraught that he deals with his misery by having unprotected sex with multiple women. Vince gets AIDS. Turtle makes millions by launching a successful energy drink company called “Turtle juice”. Women finally sleep with him because he has money, then he gets AIDS. Drama wins the Oscar for best actor. Ari is elected governor of California.

  • Jim

    Frankly, I have no desire to see a movie version of ENTOURAGE. The series used to be funny, now–as the men continue to age–the show is just a bit tired. However, if Ari comes out of the closet and sleeps with E…THEN I would consider going to a matinee…

  • jeff g

    I got one! Make another 8 seasons. Keep em’s coming and just call it entourage pt 2….I swear nobody would be mad.

  • Mel

    I really like the show so a movie would be a good thing at least to me. I think they should go with an Oscars theme and all the craziness leading up to it, like the SAG Awards, the Globes, and maybe have Vince win the Oscar for a movie about some sort of true to life redemptive story and have his life change for the better.

  • John

    Instead of the Oscars, what about Johnny Drama or Vinny getting nominated for a Razzie? They can then go to the Razzie ceremony.

  • Tiger

    Vince will begin dating Elin.

    Vince will then have an altercation with Tiger ala Emimen at the club. But Stevie will not have Tiger’s bag, er back. He will be smoking in the corner with Adam.

  • HappyinSanFran

    I love this show, just like I loved “Sex and the City”, I will see ANY movie that they make as I cannot get enough of the characters…
