When the movie spirals $15 million over budget, it's up to Vince's agent and advisor Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) to help him bring the movie back from the brink.
The movie will also include a cameo from Piers Morgan in a scene that catches viewers up on the life of Vincent Chase since the HBO series ended.
Entourage is set for release on June 3 in the Us and June 19 in the UK. »
Veteran musicvideo and concert-docu director Kevin Kerslake charts the short, hectic life of a high-flying celebrity disc jockey in “As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ Am,” an entertaining look at a talented turntablist who (for better or worse) pioneered his profession’s attainment of rock-star status in terms of glamour, media attention and economic renumeration. At the same time, there are some notable gaps left in the pic’s posthumous understanding of DJ Am, aka Adam Michael Goldstein, as its flashy surface doesn’t always help us to understand the pure artistic soul he’s depicted as here. Fest, tube and download programmers looking for music-focused features of current rather than strictly historical relevance will find this an easy pick.
Goldstein grew up amid marital discord — it was only in adulthood that he learned that his father wasn’t his biological one — in a wealthy New York family. »

BAFTA award ceremony are always glitzy affairs, and the TV Craft awards are no different. Taking place at London’s The Brewery, the biggest and best talent in TV were celebrated, with awards being given out for Best Costume Design, Best Writer and Best Director.
The first winner of the night was The Musketeers, with Phoebe De Gaye taking away the award for Best Costume Design. Clearly a little flabbergasted by her win, she took to the media room with only great things to say about her time on the BBC One smash:
It’s a great show to design. It’s got great scope, fantastic characters and it’s a great period to be given a bit of a contemporary feel to it. We also had a fantastic set up in the Czech Republic, which gave us a lot of room to make great costumes
But De Gaye did »

Almost a year ago, when the Entourage movie was filming at Warner Bros. in Burbank, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. After watching the guys drive around the backlot to film a car sequence, we had a chance to speak with Kevin Connolly during a break in production. He shared some details on what the film's about, how making the movie compares with the show, filming in L.A., what it feels like to be back with the cast, and a lot more. Entourage is in theaters June 3rd. [caption id="attachment_441757" align="alignright" width="353"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] Kevin Connolly: How are you? Good. How are you doing? Connolly: Good. A little bit banged up, but I’m here. How did it happen, the accident? Connolly: We were doing a scene where we’re playing football on the beach and Russell Wilson, who’s actually a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, »

Johnnie Walker Scotch and Entourage fans can “hug it out” with excitement. The world’s leading Scotch whisky has partnered with the highly anticipated feature film from Warner Bros. Pictures, Home Box Office and Rat-Pac Dune Entertainment to debut a new chapter in the Entourage storyline: the short film “Johnny for Johnnie.”
Like the Johnnie Walker ‘Keep Walking’ campaign, Entourage is centered around personal progress and the celebration of achievements, both big and small, along the way. From embarrassing failures to epic successes and all the steps—and missteps—in between, the guys from Entourage never stop pursuing their dreams with the utmost optimism and confidence.
“What makes the Entourage series so universally relatable is that its story revolves around a group of friends and their unrelenting pursuit of their dreams,” explains Dan Sanborn, VP of Influencer and Entertainment Marketing for Diageo North America. “We all have »

The best thing about Wayward Pines, the new, short-run effort coming to Fox, is watching how it attempts to learn from the mistakes of similar shows that have come before.
From the less-than-stellar “remake” of The Prisoner with Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen, to the largely goofball Persons Unknown (which was, sort of, The Prisoner 2: The Group), and everything else in the “trapped in a town” genre, the story can’t work if the characters are empty plot devices.
Wayward Pines is a rare example of setting out with the tropes and traps of a genre in order to dodge the pitfalls inherent in telling a type of story that can never fully distance itself from the fact that it’s pretty goofy. The problem is that while the show clearly tries to look at what made other efforts fall apart, and do those things differently, it isn’t »

Viola Davis has already been nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe, along with winning multiple SAG Awards as well, and an Emmy Award nomination is most likely in her future for her performance this season on How to Get Away With Murder. Now, Davis will be following her first run as Murder‘s Annalise Keating by playing one of the most famous figures in American history: abolitionist and former slave Harriet Tubman. Davis will be taking on the role of Tubman in an upcoming HBO film that will be based on Kate Clifford Larson’s Tubman biography Bound for the Promised Land, according to Deadline. The movie will focus on how Tubman helped hundreds of slaves travel to freedom in the North. Kirk Ellis, who wrote HBO’s John Adams miniseries, is the screenwriter for the project, and Entourage creator Doug Ellin (Entourage) and his Halyard Park »

Viola Davis is setting the groundwork to take a star turn as the abolitionist Harriet Tubman, Variety reports. Davis is developing the TV movie for HBO, with Entourage executive producer Doug Ellin, scribe Kirk Ellis, and Amblin TV. The project will reportedly be based on Kate Clifford Larson's Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman: Portrait of an American Hero, which gives a detailed look at how Tubman took the reins as one of the most fearless conductors of the Underground Railroad. The biopic hasn't received a green light yet, but its proponents are jockeying for it to film next year. Fingers crossed — start crossing your fingers, what are you doing? »

How to Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis will play famous abolitionist and former slave Harriet Tubman in an upcoming HBO movie.
The project will be based on Kate Clifford Larson’s Tubman biography Bound for the Promised Land, our sister site Deadline reports, and will detail how Tubman helped hundreds of slaves travel to freedom in the North.
Tubman later fought for the Union in the American Civil War.
The life of Harriet Tubman has been screaming for the feature film treatment for ages. Outside of — what, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?" — there's never really been a movie depiction of the famed abolitionist. Well, thanks to HBO and Amblin, that's all about to change. And Viola Davis is going to knock this out of the park. The Oscar-nominated star of "Doubt" and "The Help" will star in the TV film, based on the Kate Clifford Larson biography "Bound for the Promised Land. Writer Kirk Ellis ("John Adams," also at HBO) will pen the script and Doug Ellin ("Entourage") will produce. Two other projects about the Underground Railroad have also been in the works: Wgn's miniseries "Undeground" (produced by Akiva Goldsman) and NBC's "Freedom Run" miniseries (produced by Stevie Wonder). So obviously something is in the water. I take from all of this a fantastic role for Davis, who has popped »

Viola Davis is attached to star in an HBO telepic about the life of Harriet Tubman, the activist who helped devise a system that allowed hundreds of slaves to escape to freedom via the Underground Railroad.
Davis is developing the project with Amblin TV and writer Kirk Ellis, who has penned historical projects for HBO including its “John Adams” miniseries, and “Entourage” exec producer Doug Ellin. The untitled movie is based on the book “Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman: Portrait of an American Hero” by Kate Clifford Larson.
The movie is in the early development stage and has not been given the go-ahead for production. But it’s eyed for filming during Davis’ hiatus next year from her hit ABC drama “How to Get Away With Murder. »

Almost a year ago, when the Entourage movie was filming at Warner Bros. in Burbank, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. During a break in filming a car sequence that had the guys driving around the backlot, we got the chance to speak with Adrian Grenier. He talked about what the film’s about, how making the movie compares with the show, his thoughts on the rating, the cameos, and a lot more. [caption id="attachment_387661" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] How does it feel to be surrounded by reporters? Adrian Grenier: It’s a little intimidating. I can explain. No comment (laughs). What’s the movie that Vince is screening? Grenier: A Jekyll & Hyde movie that Vince is directing. Quite an expensive and daunting undertaking but I think he’s up to the task, but I’m biased. Is he starring in it to or is he just directing? »

Last week we had the opportunity to talk to a lot of folks behind some of 2015's biggest upcoming films at Cinemacon in Las Vegas. Now, we're rolling out another wave of interviews with cast and crew from some of WB's slate, including Magic Mike Xxl's Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, and Adam Rodriguez, Vacation's Ed Helms and Christina Applegate, Entourage's Adrian Grenier and Kevin Dillon, Black Mass director Scott Cooper, and Hot Pursuit »

The broadcaster will bring the audience up to speed on what has happened to the gang since we last saw them when the show wrapped in 2011.
The film will pick up seven or eight months on from the end of the TV series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Morgan will be seen reporting on a piece about Vinny Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his career - filling in the blanks for viewers who may not have seen the TV show.
Kevin Connolly, who plays Eric Murphy, said: "I'd met Piers Morgan a few times and he always told me that he was a big fan of the show. I asked him a few questions to see if he was bulls**tting me or not... He's seen every episode."
Entourage is set for »
By the look of the Entourage trailers, the big-screen version of the HBO hit will be a welcome continuation of the fun-loving series, but just where will we pick up with Vince, Eric, Drama, and Turtle? I went on a set visit last year with a group of reporters to observe a day of Entourage's shooting and sit down with principal actors Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Connolly, and Kevin Dillon, along with writer and director Doug Ellin (who also created the TV show). Each star gave us a few details about where their characters start the movie, which picks up about "seven or eight months" after the events in the TV series finale, according to Ellin. As for where they end up at the end of the movie, well, you have to wait until June 5. Vince Vince's career is still hot, and like a lot of actors, now he wants to direct. »
Tom Savini’s Nightmare City remake has met its indiegogo goal, but you can still support it during its final campaign days to help provide the Umberto Lenzi-presented project with more resources. Also featured in our latest round-up is an excerpt from Scott Shoyer's zombie novel, Outbreak: The Hunger, as well as details on how you can watch the first episode of Fox's Wayward Pines ahead of its May 14th debut.
Tom Savini’s Nightmare City Remake: Tom Savini, the Godfather of Gore, is fittingly set to direct and supervise the special effects on the Monsta Worx remake of Umberto Lenzi's zombie movie, Nightmare City. Lenzi himself is associate producing and presenting the project, with shooting slated to begin late this year in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles. In addition to his duties behind the camera, Savini is also attached to play a role in the film, along with »

A bit of a non-story this, but interesting all of the same. A massive billboard for Rush Hour 4 – Face/Off 2, featuring Sean Combs (Diddy) and Byung-Hun Lee has been spotted on a rooftop in Los Angeles. A bit random as there has obviously been no announcement of any such movie, but it looks like it could be a fake poster for a movie shooting in there area.
Judging by comments left over at Reddit, the general consensus seems to be that the billboard may be a left-behind from the recent Entourage movie shoot, which is due this summer. Diddy featured in the original TV series on HBO, and will potentially have a prescence in the new movie which releases this summer.
Another theory is that this is 100% legit.
Anyhoo, take a look, and tell us what you think.

One of the most remarkable accomplishments I've ever seen, in all of my time visiting film sets, was the completely-to-scale Warner Bros. backlot that was built for "Entourage: The Movie." Wait… I'm looking at my notes… I'm wrong. That was the actual Warner Bros. backlot, and it was an afternoon last year when a group of journalists were invited to do a set visit in perhaps the least exciting location possible. I know that for many people, it is a thrill to step onto a studio backlot, and that thrill is part of what "Entourage" has always traded on when peddling its fantasy version of the Hollywood life to audiences. But in this case, we ended up standing for a few hours in what may be the least interesting spot on a lot, between two soundstages. When I was invited to attend the "set" of the film, I immediately »
