Mark Wahlberg: 'Entourage' done next year, movie coming
Wahlberg says that the HBO series, which begins its seventh season on June 27, and it will conclude early next year with a six-episode run. Then it could be on to the big screen for fake movie star Vincent Chase ( Adrian Grenier) and his boys.
"I am more focused on making that movie than my own films," Wahlberg tells MTV News. "I just think we can make a great movie. I think people always wanted [it] and have complained that the episodes are too short. ... I think we're going to do it."
The upcoming season of "Entourage" will find Vince becoming a thrill addict -- much to the dismay of E ( Kevin Connolly) and Ari ( Jeremy Piven) -- after an accident on the set of an action flick. Ari also has a new assistant now that Lloyd ( Rex Lee) is an agent himself, representing Johnny Drama ( Kevin Dillon). Turtle ( Jerry Ferrara), meanwhile, is attracted to an employee ( Dania Ramirez) of his new car-service business.
Wahlberg says he sees a six-episode coda to the series airing in 2011, "and then in the trailer [for the movie] you see [Ari and Lloyd] waking up together in Vegas, not knowing what happened."
