Well, we don't know how Entourage: The Movie will turn out, but at least it's finally been given the green light. Plus, we trust series creator Doug Ellin to make something funny, heartfelt and, well, nothing like other HBO shows-turned-movies; just don't put Vinny back in rehab.
Now that the film version of the comedy drama is officially in the works, we decided to take a look back at the impressively realistic movies Entourage made up.
Head On: Not technically Vincent Chase's (Adrian Grenier) first big-screen part - that was the Mandy Moore-starring A Walk to Remember - but it's the earliest one we see him in action for. In fact, the second scene from episode one is Vince and the guys rambling on the way to the premiere of this crime flick.
Head On sparks Hollywood hype for the actor but despite then getting offered $4m for action blockbuster Matterhorn, Vince and manager/best friend Eric (Kevin Connolly) reject the script. Awww, the days of artistic integrity.
Queens Boulevard: After the success of Head On, an independent movie was pretty out of step for the rising star. But Queens-born Vince trusts Eric's judgement and QB director Billy Walsh is only half the coke-sniffing art-porno wacko/genius he later becomes.
Winning the 'Grand Jury Award' at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, the indie drama is handed a nationwide release... least until Billy finds out the studio changed the original cut. It's safe to say the suits get told, and the movie is straight on its way to DVD.
The 'Whaaa, James Cameron Can Act?!' One
Aquaman: Just when we think Vinny has a touch of the Joaquin Phoenixes about him, the guy goes all Downey Jr on us and ends up in a comic book movie. The director? James Cameron! And the strangest thing about JC's four-ep cameo? His acting isn't that terrible.
Aquaman smashes box office records set by Spider-Man in its opening weekend and becomes one of the HIGHEST-GROSSING FILMS OF ALL TIME. It's not all rosy, though, as co-star (and ex-gf) Mandy Moore breaks Vince's heart (again) and Jake Gyllenhaal replaces him in Aquaman 2. Ouch!
Gatsby: An overly pretentious Pablo Escobar biopic called Medellin, directed by the overly pretentious Walsh, and on-set tensions with the unfinished Smoke Jumpers leave Vince's career somewhat shaken. Who you gonna call? Martin Scorsese, derrr.
The legendary director adapts classic F Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby (now a real movie and everything) and, thanks to producer Gus Van Sant, picks Vince for the lead. The movie hits No.1 at the box office and Vinny Chase is Hollywood royalty once again.
The One That Got Sedated
The Ramones: The Movie: Aside from the ten movies Vince actually starred in, there were hundreds of scripts across the series that slipped through the net. I mean, there are enough post-apocalyptic blockbusters set in 2075, as it is.
But one that would have been cool to see is I Wanna Be Sedated, the story of New York punk rockers The Ramones. A power struggle between agent Ari and producer Bob sadly scuppered the project, however, and Vince bleating out 'Sheena Is a Punk Rocker' in a scruffy leather can only be left to the imagination.
