Series ended in 2011
Warner Bros.’ “Entourage” movie will start shooting on Jan. 16 in Los Angeles.
The show’s creator, Doug Ellin, tweeted a photo of the eight cast members — including Jeremy Piven, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Debbie Mazar — with a caption saying, “January 16 start date. Getting pumped.”
The show ended its eight-season run in Sept. 2011. The series finale, watched by 2.6 million viewers, concluded with a cliffhanger to set up the movie.
Ellin is on board to direct the film. The movie was chosen by lottery in June as one of 31 productions eligible to receive California’s Film and Television Tax Credit, landing seventh on the list with $5.85 million — the highest allocation among the 14 features selected.
A spokeswoman for the California Film Commission, which administers the credit, said, “This project is still on the approved list and will be shooting within the 180 day deadline for the start of principal photography.”
The tax credit is a maximum of 20% of a film’s budget.
