Oh Boy They Really Are Making an Entourage Movie

... At the HBO TCAs session for Entourage, showrunner Doug Ellin confirmed our worst fears. They really are trying to make an Entourage movie. Producer Mark Wahlberg says he'll finance it himself if he has to and compared Entourage to The Hangover so he thinks it will do great at the box office. Wahlberg will have to do a lot of romantic comedies with Jennifer Aniston if he wants to pay for that mistake. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Molly Parker, best known for playing Alma Garret in HBO's Deadwood, is joining NBC's The Firm. She'll play Abby McDeere, the wife of central character Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas), a lawyer who brought down a law firm that was a front for the mob. It's based on a book, but who has time to read anymore with all this Farmville to play? [NBC]

... At its TCA panel, Starz discussed the future of BBC-import Torchwood on its network. Turns out there are no plans to treat the show like a normal show. The sci-fi series won't be "an annual show," and could be renewed at any time or simply disappear. It's all up to show creator Russell T. Davies to come up with a good idea when he's ready. [EW]

... I'm not sure why this is such a big story, but HBO had to clarify that it isn't planning on canceling Game of Thrones any time soon. "We told [author George R.R. Martin] we'd go as long as he keeps writing," HBO co-president Richard Plepler said. So yes, the show that's turning into a phenomenon and was recently nominated for several Emmys isn't getting canceled. This also just in: water is wet! [EW]

... MTV has given the greenlight to Dumb Girls, a new comedy from Awkward. creator Lauren Iungerich. The show follows a group of 20-somethings that are smart and successful in life, but not in love. Ain't that all of us? [Deadline Hollywood]

... Nickelodeon has renewed T.U.F.F. Puppy for a third season! [Deadline Hollywood]

... Tough guy Vinnie Jones, who played Scales in The Cape, will once again play another superpowered criminal kingpin. Jones joins FX's Powers, and will play Johnny Royalle, a bad dude with telekinesis. [Deadline Hollywood]

... No stranger to guest stars, Chuck has scored two more for its upcoming season. Craig Kilborn, formerly of The Daily Show, will play a bad guy in the season premiere, and Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) will be on for multiple episodes as a rival spy. [TV Line / EW]

Don't know what's with all the Entourage hate on this site...it's an entertaining show for the most part... However, an 'Entourage movie' does sound like a bad, bad idea.. but it just goes to show you how Hollywood thinks nowadays: "milk it till they hate it, then milk it some more!" (ahem X- Men first class, I speak directly to you). And bonus irony points that Entourage is about corporate corrupt Hollywood...

Game of Thrones is good, but its fan base does not classify it as a phenomenon.

I think an Entourage movie would be cool. But, only with a fantastic script. Because it can easily be a flop, based on other TV shows making movies. If they do make a movie, I'm totally looking forward to watching it. Entourage is great.

I have to agree with the TV.com Staff in regards to the Entourage movie. I would actually rather watch a movie with Jennifer Aniston as a single mother/bounty hunter who never told her ex-boyfriend(Walhberg) a spy who secretly works for the CIA, that he is the father of her child. Now they unexpectedly must work together because the fugitive Aniston is chasing is involved in an international crime syndicate Walhberg has been tasked to bring down. Secrets are shared, truths uncovered, and many plot holes laid bare, in this quirky story about love and cliched romantic comedy devices. That shit would be better than an Entourage movie.

i think an entourage movie would be awesome and i know this will shock everyone who works for tv.com but so will a lot of other people because if entourage didnt have a huge fanbase it wouldnt have been on for this long. and in one ep of entourage they were all driving ferraris that belong to mark wahlberg, so i dont think the man;s strapped for cash
