Although obviously everything remains in preliminary stages for the moment, there is a script and deals are in the works with the show’s stars. Doug Ellin — one of the executive producers of the series (with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson) — wrote the screenplay and will direct the film.
Deadline.com first broke the news and reports that negotiations for the film have begun with Adrian Grenier (Chase), Kevin Dillon (Johnny Drama), Kevin Connolly (Eric “E” Murphy), Jerry Ferrara (Turtle) and Jeremy Piven (Ari Gold). There is no word yet on any members of the supporting cast or on which Hollywood stars might appear as themselves in the film.
The TV show focused on the exploits of a Hollywood star along with the man-children who made up his inner circle. It ran from 2004 to 2011.
