Huffington Post - over 3 years
Fresh from hugging things out with Warner Bros., "Entourage" cast members Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and Emmanuelle Chriqui and writer-director Doug Ellin got together on Friday night. Co-star Kevin Dillon was not in attendance, but conspiracy theorists shouldn't get too worked up. Chriqui tweeted that Dillon was just busy with prior plans.

"Sales of President Obama masks at Party City in Augusta, Me. are down...way down. The public has spoken; no one fantasizes about being a politician anymore. The most popular costme at that Party City? The minions from 'Despicable Me.'...the costumes we choose say something about who we are, or wish to be," writes English professor Jennifer Finney Boylan. Come to think of it, "Despicable Me" is still one of the best movies in recent years. • There is so little to see about the star Robert Redford in his current tight-lipped portrayal of a man dying at sea in the movie "All Is Lost." So we can focus on the ring the character Redford is wearing on his left hand - silver with a turquoise inset. Well, you can order this "Eye of the Storm Ring" for $210 from the Sundance catalogue.

'Entourage' Movie Could Be Announced Today
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It looks like things are just about hugged out for Team "Entourage." After a two-week stretch of juicy tabloid headlines about greed and friendship, co-star Jerry Ferrara told Wendy Williams that the movie adaptation could happen as soon as right now. "It's looking good. It's looking real good. It could be closed today," Ferrara, who played Turtle on the HBO series, said in an interview with Williams. "I could go look at my phone right now, and it's done. It's real close. We're hoping to shoot in January. Hoping." That hope echoes what co-star Kevin Connolly has been saying for a while. Speaking to TMZ on last Sunday, Connolly said the film was going to happen, and while nothing was official just yet, it looked likely to star production in January. Connolly had similar enthusiasm for the film back in April of this year. "Everything is such hard work, but that'll be like a vacation," Connolly said to HuffPost Entertainment about returning to "Entourage." "It can't happen fast enough ...

'Entourage' Movie Delayed Because Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara 'Holding Out': Report
Moviefone Blog - over 3 years
An "Entourage" movie has been in the works ever since it was announced that the HBO dramedy's eighth season would be its last. While it wasn't until this January that the project got the official green light, with creator Doug Ellin signed on to direct and Warner Bros. lined up to distribute, filming still has yet to begin. According to a recent Page Six report, the delay comes down to the stars, not all of whom have firmed up their contracts. "Jeremy [Piven] finally signed his contract two weeks ago. His deal closed August 29," a source tells Page Six. "But there are other members of the cast, including Adrian Grenier and Jerry Ferrara, who are still holding out." TheWrap echos the insider, reporting that while Piven (Ari Gold) and Kevin Connolly (Eric "E" Murphy) are both locked in, Kevin Dillon (Johnny "Drama" Chase), Grenier (Vincent Chase), and Ferrara (Turtle) are not. Which is kind of a problem, considering Ellin's script -- per TheWrap -- takes place six months afte ...

Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Now that the "Entourage" movie is official, it's time to figure out which stars and public figures will appear as themselves in the new film. First up on the wish list for star Adrien Grenier? President Barack Obama. "I think if he has some spare time, maybe he'll grace us with a cameo," Grenier, who plays Vincent Chase in "Entourage," said of the president to Haute Living. "Maybe Vince will go into politics." Grenier himself is active in politics, going so far as to stump for Barack Obama during his first presidential campaign in 2008. In March of 2012, Grenier posted a photo of himself and Obama at the White House with the following caption: "I promised to make the 'Entourage' movie if he would do a cameo. He agreed. Seriously." Since going off the air in 2011, rumors of an "Entourage" movie were persistent, but the project didn't get an official green light until January of this year.

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Grown-up boys and their childhood toys have been a recurring feature of American comedies lately, from Steve Carrell finally unloading his vintage action figures in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" to Jerry Ferrara's enforced separation from his Voltron collection in "Think Like a Man." Making his big-screen debut as co-writer (with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild) and director, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane takes the idea to an insanely logical extreme in "Ted," a movie about what happens 30 years or so after a kid gets his wish for a talking, living teddy bear. ...

What's playing in theaters this weekend?
Aiken Standard - almost 5 years
Dark Shadows NEW! The years, gray hairs and wrinkles fade away from Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer, and the cobwebs are brushed off “Dark Shadows” in Tim Burton’s campy and dark take on the late 1960s vampire soap opera. A cheesy and cheap but beloved TV program takes an affectionate ribbing in the film, which has more in common with “That ’70s Show” than its actual source. But it’s a fun flashback to the days when a jilted witch (former Bond babe Eva Green, in fine fury) cursed the Byron-haired Barnabas Collins (Depp) to eternal damnation as a vampire, his immortality granted “so that my suffering would never end.” The evil Angelique killed his parents, turned the seaport village of Collinsport against Barnabas and had him entombed. And when he is accidentally awakened in 1972, he discovers that was just the beginning of her revenge. The descendants (Pfeiffer, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Gulliver McGrath) are living in the cluttered ruins of Collinwood, their vast mansion. A ...
