Entourage Movie: We Told You Last December


Remember last December when Mark Walhberg told us all about the inevitable “Entourage” movie? Well, the subject came up recently with the Television Critics Association. And it was confirmed, of course, that the movie is in focus.

That “Entourage” will follow “Sex and the City” to the big screen is no surprise then to readers of this column. Wahlberg brought it up last December at the premiere of “The Lovely Bones.”

And it makes sense: “Entourage” probably has more flexibility going to the silver screen than “SATC.” For one thing it’s not locked into the Carrie- Mr. Big romance. The boys can sow their wild oats over and over. And there’s plenty of room for parodying the film business.
