News came in yesterday morning that a movie based on the HBO show Entourage has been greenlit, but more importantly, Tom Scharpling, host of the radio show/podcast The Best Show on WFMU announced via Twitter that he'll be writing his own Entourage movie live on the radio on Tuesday (9pm EST/6pm PST). Scharpling has proven capable, with co-conspirator Jon Wurster, of writing shallow dirtbag characters on The Best Show and he's also pretty good at making fun of Entourage. Listening to Scharpling riff his own Entourage movie might actually be worth the hefty price of living in a world where the Entourage movie is a real [...]
Since the series finale, an Entourage movie has been a popular topic of conversation at many male necklace stores and wet t-shirt contests. Well, it seems like they've finally priced out the tequila budget and are looking to start shooting in January, with a script written by the show's creator Doug Ellin. Previously, Mark Wahlberg talked about the film as a return to the show's roots:

I reported a while back on how some MTV reality "star" who goes by Johnny Bananas was planning to sue the makers of Entourage because they featured a ridiculous fake animated show called Johnny's Bananas.

For his part, Kevin Dillon, who had the character-playing-character role of "Johnny Bananas" in Entourage, told reporters in August that neither he nor Ellin "knew anything about [Devenanzio]" when the character was created, saying the [...]
If you were already pressing cold steel to the side of your head at the prospect of surviving a Turtle-less existence, chase away those thoughts of suicide for at least a year or two more: the Entourage movie is definitely happening. Well, allegedly. “We’re going to do a movie," creator Doug Ellin confirms. "We’re going to do it. It’s a question of when and how quick. We’ll sit down and come up with an idea." Co-producer Mark Wahlberg adds, "“Well, I said if I had to finance myself, I’d do it. I certainly hope it has a chance to become a feature film, everybody always says the episodes [...]
While the possibility of a Charlie Sheen cameo on Entourage threatens to produce an almost cataclysmic amount of dick cheese, producer Doug Ellin says he's planning to "come up with something good" for the actor, which we're assuming means Charlie will get that Two And A Half Men finale he always wanted.
