Talk about putting your money where your mouth is! Mark Wahlberg is so confided in the movie based on his experiences as an up-and-coming actor, he is considering releasing the movie earlier than expected. Series geeks familiar with “Entourage” will be well aware that HBO’s big screen adaptation for its smash hit TV show was stuck in development hell for quite some time. Originally set to be released on June 12, 2015, Wahlberg said he is extremely excited about the big screen adaptation and is perpetrated to release the flick sooner.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, he said:
” ‘Entourage’, I just saw the movie. It’s fantastic. The stakes are so big. You’re rooting for these guys to succeed. There’s so much humor and heart in it and Doug just did an amazing job. I don’t think we’re going to be able to wait a year to release the movie. We’re going to show the studio sooner, rather than later. If it makes most sense to wait until June, we’ll wait until June.”
He certainly doesn’t waste any time when it comes to his passion for a project. The 43-year-old actor says that a sequel is already in the works:
“I told [director] Doug [Ellin], ‘Let’s not wait for the movie to come out to start planning the next one because this is definitely going to be a big success,’ ”
“If I have anything to do with it there will be.”
The big screen adaptation will pick up where the series left off at the end of season 8, with Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Dillon, and Jerry Ferrara back to reprise their respective roles. Some newcomers will also be introduced to spice up the big screen adaptation which includes the likes of Billy Bob Thornton, Kid Cudi, and Liam Neeso.
