Good news. Have you wanted to see two hours of nothing happening? Now you can. When asked about the future of Entourage, Mark Wahlberg said, “We’ll see; there could be more,” he then added, “But then, a movie.”
Entourage, the hit HBO series started by Doug Ellin, Larry Charles, and some other bros is looking at eventually making a run at the 90-foot screen. Now you can see Turtle buy shoes, Johnny Drama worry about looking old, E worry about Vince, and Vince be the least compelling character in a contemporary television series, but this time: 90-FEET HIGH!
I’ve watched every season of Entourage up to the fifth, and admittedly, it’s always pretty to look at. But not so much in way of the plot. Plot is an ancillary device that gets in the way of the dudes getting money and poon. And for that reason, Entourage might be the most accurate contemporary show that we have.
Although I wish someone would explain to me why, after having a successful television series, they always need to port it to the big screen. Are filmmakers that out of ideas? Where are the movies for the television shows that need them, like Arrested Development, or The Wire? Why is it always The Simpsons, Sex in the City, and Entourage?
Look for the film to come after three more seasons of the show. Where Vince will almost do a movie, then not do a movie, then do a different movie. AND THEN ENTOURAGE WILL BE A MOVIE. Meta.
