(LOS ANGELES) — Fans who watched Vince, Drama, E and Turtle traipse around Hollywood in HBO’s Entourage get excited because a film isn’t too far off.
Deadline reports that creator Doug Ellin is almost done penning the screenplay to the highly anticipated movie.
While writing in Hawaii, Ellin said he needed some time off after working on the series for “10 years of my life,” but now he’s up to page 110 on his screenplay, which he hopes to “finish by Sunday (I pray),” he wrote in an email to Deadline.
Ellin also dished that the film picks up six months after the series finale in which Ari Gold get a major occupational upgrade.
“There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters,” he wrote.
Even the actors, such as Jerry Ferrara, who plays Turtle, have no idea what will happen in the upcoming movie.
“That’s kind of the fun part,” he told ABC News Radio earlier this year. “I like not knowing because [Ellin] always goes to the right place with it, so I’m curious myself.”
