OK, I just lost my mind. THE BOYS ARE BACK! Yep, WB just dropped the first official trailer for Entourage The Movie and I have to say it looks like it has everything that made the series so enjoyable. They call it a teaser but at 2 and a half minutes, it seems like a full trailer.
It will be, thank goodness, rated R and drops June 5, 2015. I can’t wait! I knew this was in the works but never really expected it to happen. Aside from all the core cast, it looks like a lot of favorite characters will be returning like Sloan McQuewick, Billy Walsh, Dana Gordon, Shauna Roberts, Melissa Gold and of course, the irreplaceable Lloyd Lee.
Official synopsis from the official web site…no spoilers here
“Entourage,” the much-anticipated big-screen version of the award-winning hit HBO series, reunites the show’s original cast, led by Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.
Movie star Vincent Chase (Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) and Johnny (Dillon), are back…and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Piven). Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood.
Also starring are Billy Bob Thornton and Haley Joel Osment as father and son, Larsen and Travis McCredle. Returning cast from the series also includes Perrey Reeves as Ari Gold’s wife; Emmanuelle Chriqui as Sloan; Rhys Coiro as Billy Walsh; Debi Mazar as Vince’s publicist, Shauna; Rex Lee as Lloyd; Constance Zimmer as Dana Gordon; and Nora Dunn as Dr. Marcus. Emily Ratajkowski appears as herself. Rounding out the cast are Alan Dale, who appeared in the series, rapper Scott Mescudi, and Rhonda Rousey.
“Entourage” creator Doug Ellin is directing the feature film from his own screenplay, story by Ellin & Rob Weiss, based on characters created by Ellin. Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Ellin are producing, with Wayne Carmona serving as executive producer.
The behind-the-scenes creative team reunites several key members who worked on the original series, including director of photography Steven Fierberg, editor Jeff Groth, production designer Chase Harlan, and costume designer Olivia Miles.
