'Entourage' movie a possibility
Mark Wahlberg: Two more seasons of HBO series, then film
Two more seasons of HBO's "Entourage" and then a movie?
That seems to be the plan, according to the show's executive producer Mark Wahlberg.
Asked about the future of the comedy series, which recently was picked up for a seventh cycle coming off one of its strongest seasons, Wahlberg indicated that he believes there are two more seasons left in the show.
"We'll see; there could be more," he said at the premiere of his latest film, "The Lovely Bones." "But then, a movie."
HBO seems on board with the idea.
"It is not out of the realm of possibility," an HBO spokeswoman said about the prospect of an "Entourage" movie. "Right now, the creators are concentrating on the new season."
In following a successful series run with a movie, the Doug Ellin-created "Entourage" would mirror another long-running HBO comedy, "Sex and the City."
Then there is a long-rumored "The Sopranos" movie, which has not moved closer to reality.
