"Entourage" movie being considered
By Roger Friedman and Nellie Andreeva
NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Two more seasons of HBO's "Entourage" and then a movie?
That seems to be the plan, according to Mark Wahlberg, an executive producer of the Hollywood-set show.
Asked about the future of the comedy series, which recently was picked up for a sixth cycle, Wahlberg indicated that he believes there are two more seasons left in the show.
"We'll see; there could be more," he said at the premiere of Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones," in which he has a starring role. "But then," Wahlberg added, "a movie."
HBO seems on board with the idea.
"It is not out of the realm of possibility," an HBO spokeswoman said about the prospect of an "Entourage" movie. "Right now, the creators are concentrating on the new season."
Another long-running HBO comedy, "Sex and the City," followed its successful TV run with a big-screen feature.
