Mark Wahlberg's 'Entourage' Movie Delayed Because No One Can Agree On One Big Thing
Hopefully, no one's been holding their breath for that much-talked-about Entourage movie: According to executive producer Mark Wahlberg, the Entourage movie will happen... only when the guys "stop being so greedy." Oof.
Wahlberg made the comments in a video from (who else?) TMZ, when they ambushed him at LAX on Monday night. When asked about the Entourage film, which has been in the works since the show ended in 2011, Wahlberg answers without pause: "Soon as those guys stop being so greedy." There should be a cat sound effect right about now, or something.
Though Wahlberg doesn't specify who, exactly, is holding out for more money, previous reports might give us some clues: Back in September, Page Six reported that stars Adrien Grenier and Jerry Ferrara were holding out on their contracts, even though Piven — and the rest of the cast — had already signed. Production was originally supposed to begin this past May, but with setbacks, it's not clear when the film will actually be released, if ever.
To his credit, Wahlberg did continue with his statement after: "No, we just want to make sure ... it's one of those things where if the movie is a success, then we'll get to make a lot more of them, and then everybody will make a lot of money ... We want to make it for the fans. It's the most I've ever been asked about a movie."
