'Entourage' To End Run – Movie May Be Next
Vince and the gang will be leaving Hollywood next summer. After much speculation, HBO announced this weekend that the eighth season of Entourage will indeed be its last. The show has gotten pretty lackluster reviews this season, so the cancellation should come as no surprise. However, like its female counterpart, Sex and the City, there have been some rumblings of a possible feature film in the works. While promoting his latest film, The Other Guys, Entourage executive producer Mark Wahlberg, pictured, announced that the ideal plan is to have a six-episode season followed by the film.
Wahlberg has made the Entourage venture his number one priority, telling MTV that he’s "more focused on making that movie than my own films." But according to HBO’s president of programming, Michael Lombardo, nothing is set in stone. "Doug [Ellin, creator] clearly wants to write a film but wants to do it if it makes sense for the story," Lombardo said. "We have a long-term relationship with Doug Ellin, and I’m sure you’ll soon see another series from him here. But next summer will definitely be the final season of Entourage." –ELENA COX
