Wahlberg Says "Greed" Holding Up 'Entourage' Movie; Adrian Grenier Responds

Posted 5:55 PM October 21st, 2013 by Binh Ngo

Last month, TheWrap's Jeff Sneider reported that the one or multiple cast members are holding up the Entourage movie in hopes of scoring a major payday. According to Mark Wahlberg, that's exactly what happened.

When asked by TMZ (via The Playlist) when's the movie's going to happen, Wahlberg said, "[a]s soon as them guys stop being so greedy."

Wahlberg is an executive producer of the movie, so he's going to side with Warner Bros. on this, but them's fighting words.

Adrian Grenier, one of the leads on the TV show, took to Instagram to present his side of things.

"To all Entourage fans," Grenier wrote. "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"

Grenier et al are in the right to hold out for as much as can, but as Sneider said in his report, Entourage is getting "significant tax credit" by the California Film Commission and if it's not made soon, that will go away, making the movie even more costly to make. Something for both sides to think about.
