Even before last week's finale aired and wrapped up eight years of adventures on HBO, there was loud chatter that the series would become a movie.
"It better happen," Wahlberg said over the weekend at Las Vegas's Palms Place Hotel and Spa. "We're working on [a movie] as we speak."
By ending the storyline on an upbeat note – Vinnie (Adrien Grenier) got married, Eric (Kevin Connolly) got back his bride-to-be, Drama (Kevin Dillon) got his series, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) got his fortune, and Ari (Jeremy Piven) got his marriage back on track and a job offer to run a studio – Wahlberg says everything is "teed up for a movie."
So will Ari Gold opt to take the studio offer, or will he keep his word to his wife (Perrey Reeves) that they'll take a year off together? Reveals Wahlberg: "The dream job he got offered is too good to pass up."
