‘Entourage’ Creator Considers Movie

Aug 20, 2007  •  Post A Comment

An “Entourage” movie is not completely out of the question, according to Doug Ellin, the show’s creator and executive producer.
Talking with TelevisionWeek managing editor Melissa Grego, Mr. Ellin said although the possibility of a movie hasn’t been discussed, he’s not against the idea.
“If people were interested in that, and somebody wanted to finance it, I would be all for it. But it’s never been discussed,” he said. “I hope we have four or five good seasons left of this show before that were to be the case.”
This week’s episode, “Snow Job,” was loosely based on the creation of the movie “Adaptation,” Mr. Ellin said.
He also drew some inspiration for the portrayals of writers on the show from his experiences trying to pitch a TV show for The WB based on the movie “The Flamingo Kid.”
Driving home after being rejected by The WB, Mr. Ellin said, “It was that moment of going, ‘Wow, my career is completely over.’”
After that low, Mr. Ellin is riding pretty high as this season nears an end, with two episodes left. However, Mr. Ellin is trying not to think about the upcoming fifth season.
“All I’m doing in the next three weeks to get ready is playing golf,” he said.
