Fans of the starry “Entourage” have been hankering for the film version ever since creator Doug Ellin announced he was putting pen to paper on one. So what’s the hold up? Well, according to producer Mark Wahlberg, it’s a ‘greedy’ cast member. While most of the players have signed up to reprise their roles from the HBO fave – including scene-stealing Jeremy Piven – it’s suggested Adrian Griener, who plays lead show pony Vinnie Chase, is the one holding out.
Grenier, who spends most of his time behind the camera these days, has released a statement to his Instagram account, offering his side of the story.
“To all Entourage fans. 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”
So, there you go, Grenier may be holding out… but it’s not because he wants more money. Maybe he simply wants more.. Sasha Grey!? That, I’d believe.
