On June 5, dudes and babes all over the country will undoubtedly flock to theaters for the BROtion picture event of 2015, as the Entourage movie will finally open and reveal what Vincent Chase and his besties have been up to since the series ended in 2011. Doug Ellin’s latest story has Vinnie the director $15 million over budget on a movie that is being financed by Ari’s new studio, and obviously the former agent is not happy about that at all. Hijinks and a billion celebrity cameos can be expected to ensue, and with them a huge box office performance that will lead to both fans and Warner Bros. asking for more.
Obviously, nothing is certain except for death, taxes and Turtle’s love of shoes, so there’s always a chance that the Entourage movie could simply be too little, too late, brah, and fans will have grown up and moved on from believing that these are likable characters. However, Kevin Dillon isn’t buying that idea, because he’s already talking about the likelihood of Entourage 2: Even More Celebrity Cameos Than The First One.
On a potential sequel to the film iteration of the Mark Wahlberg-inspired and-produced project, the man behind Johnny “Drama” Chase told us there’s a “really good chance,” supposing the first one does well — which Dillon thinks it will.
“I think it’s a really good movie, from what I’ve seen it looks great,” he commented.
“I don’t know what held it up. I thought we should have already had the first movie out already. We should have been on No. 2 by now,” Dillon said. “A lot of people said, ‘Oh, it’s good to keep them waiting a little bit.’ I thought we kept them waiting a little too long.” (Via The Wrap, H/T to Bro Bible)
In fairness, had an Entourage movie been released in a timelier manner following the show’s end, Dillon would have never been able to star in the CBS sitcom How to Be a Gentleman or straight-to-Crackle movies like The Throwaways. Spread your wings and fly, Drama, and then return to the titles that made you inexplicably famous.
