The off screen drama started when TMZ posted a video of Mark Wahlberg in LAX being followed by the paparazzi. In a very un-Kanye-like manner Wahlberg continues to answer a litany of questions until he is hit with the one that matters,
“When are we going to see the Entourage Movie.”
His answer, is one that no one was expecting to hear,
“AS SOON AS THEM GUYS STOP BEING GREEDY”
Wahlberg didn’t elaborate but that was enough for the public to go wild. Wild enough that Adrien Grenier took to instagram to provide his view point on the subject. He posted a picture stating,
“To all Entourage fans. I owe it to you to make a couple things clear. I take my role as Vince on the show & off very seriously. All decisions I make personally & for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. It has, & never will be about the money for me. I promise. I will always stand up for the boys (that includes you) & do what I can to make sure they are treated fairly, and not be taken advantage of by anybody. The spirit of Entourage is about sharing the opportunities given to us and I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY. I assure you, despite the perception, there is no greed in my heart. Remember, it will all work out in the end. It always does. —— I will try to answer questions with hashtag #entourageboysshare”
And just in case you thought it was Turtle holding out….Jerry Ferrara says, it’s not him. He says he would do the film for free!!
Rumor has it that Piven and Connelly have inked their deals leaving Ferrara, Grenier and Dillon.
I say with all the crap hitting the big screen, pay these guys whatever they want and get the movie filmed before we all forget who Vincent Chase is. It will be worth it.
