Jerry Ferrara feels relieved that the controversy surrounding the long-planned movie version of the HBO series “Entourage” is finally over.
“We start shooting in January, and now we can get to work. All the other stuff is in the past and now we have one goal, to make a great movie for the fans,” Ferrara said.
“Entourage” creator Doug Ellin confirmed the movie’s production this week when he tweeted a photo of himself and the cast arm-in-arm.
Since the film was announced early last year, various rumors surfaced about the why the movie had not gone into production, including cast members holding out for more money.
“There was a moment early on where it was a little frustrating, but then after a while, it was just kind of bewildering. Like, wow, I can’t believe it’s being talked about like this and none of it is even really true. It just got blown out of proportion,” Ferrara said.
Ferrara, who plays “Turtle,” is joined in the big-screen version by Jeremy Piven, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Kevin Connolly.
