Adrian Grenier Says 'Entourage' Hold-Up Not "About the Money"
Prompted by talk that he was stalling a possible Entourage movie by holding out for more money, Adrian Grenier has responded to claims on his Instagram account to break down what's going on with the project:
To all Entourage fans. I owe it to you to make a couple things clear. I take my role as Vince on the show & off very seriously. All decisions I make personally & for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. It has, & never will be about the money for me. I promise. I will always stand up for the boys (that includes you) & do what I can to make sure they are treated fairly, and not be taken advantage of by anybody. The spirit of Entourage is about sharing the opportunities given to us and I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY. I assure you, despite the perception, there is no greed in my heart. Remember, it will all work out in the end. It always does. ------ I will try to answer questions with hashtag#entourageboysshare
Rumors that Grenier and co-star Jerry Ferrara (who also spoke out this weekend) were holding up production of the long-awaited film by trying to negotiate for more money were exacerbated last week when executive producer Mark Wahlberg told TMZ that the movie would happen when the guys "stop being so greedy." Though he tried to save face later by adding that they all want to make the movie for the fans, it was too late — fans were already wondering who was holding out for more money, and a September Page Six report surprisingly pointed to Grenier and Ferrara as the culprits.
