If They Can Get Everybody Together For The Entourage Movie, What Will It Be About?

Over the weekend, Entourage creator Doug Ellin and his star Kevin Connolly had a public exchange on Twitter. I don’t know if it was pre-planned stuff, but it was a pretty elegant way of updating everybody on the long-promised movie spin-off of their series.

Details of the feature film have been pretty well hidden, but I’ve managed to dig a little into what the plans entail and have clarified just a few of the key points.

Though the series ended with Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold choosing his personal and family life over his career, the film will see him diving right back in at the deep end and taking over a movie studio. This means getting in bed with a financier, but what’s key to the storyline is that this billionaire has a young son who wants to get into the biz. Junior gets planted into the studio, where he gives his semi-informed notes on just about everything.

The big movie within the movie will be an outrageously expensive action-saturated version of Draculaset to star Vince Chase and produced by Ari’s studio. There are a number of obstacles in the way of the production, but none so serious as Vince sleeping with a girl that the financier’s son also has a fancy for.

Indeed, there are three separate “revenge” or “chase” stories woven into the plot line that have a sexual liaison as their inciting incident or engine. I guess that’s the Entourage way.

Interestingly, the plans don’t seem to be leading the film back to anything like the closure achieved at the end of the TV series. I guess that might be sequel ambition, though it may simply be a matter of Ellin not being able to undo his bows and then tie them up again quite so neatly.

I understand that it’s not a huge film and production could be quite nimble, not to mention relatively brief, so getting everybody into line shouldn’t be as tricky as it was with, just by way of example, Netflix’s Arrested Development.
