The long-awaited Entourage movie is finally in production but Mark Wahlberg revealed it wasn't an easy task.
"Movie is happening finally," the actor told reporters on the red carpet at the Lone Survivor premiere, held at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City on Tuesday. "A lot of kicking and screaming but we got it done."
When asked about the rumors regarding model Kate Upton's lead role in the upcoming movie, the Lone Survivor star remained tight-lipped.
"I don't know," Wahlberg said. "I can't give away anything."
However, fans of the HBO show, which aired from 2004 to 2011, can definitely expect to see the full original cast return for the film.
In the series, Adrian Grenier played Vincent Chase, an actor who moved from Queens, N.Y. to Hollywood with his childhood friends Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), as well as his older brother Johnny "Drama" Chase (Kevin Dillon.) His comical and successful agent Ari Gold is played by Jeremy Piven.
In the series finale, Vince decided he was going to marry a woman he had met only 24 hours earlier while Eric rekindled with his pregnant girlfriend Sloan, played by Emmanuelle Chriqui. Gold quit his job at his agency in an attempt to mend his relationship with his wife, who feels he puts work before her.
Production for the film is set to start in January and the movie is expected for release next Thanksgiving.
