'Entourage' Hold Outs Want Same Deal as Jeremy Piven's


Over the past couple of days, negotiations in the Entourage movie have spilled out into the public when executive producer Mark Wahlberg told TMZ that the movie will move forward "[a]s soon as them guys stop being so greedy."

This prompted a response from cast member Adrian Grenier, who wrote on Instagram that he will "sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY."

So what is with this equality business?

According to The Hollywood Reporter's sources, Jeremy Piven is getting a sweet backend deal that allows him a share of the films profits. He's also getting paid more upfront than the rest of the cast members. Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon all want what Piven is getting, at least on the backend.

The movie is getting a tax credit from California that will expire soon if it's not made. The latest the movie can go into production and still get the tax credit is January 2014, according to a source.

We'll see who blinks first in this standoff, but most likely, it'll be the producers.
