Entourage Movie a Go, Says Kevin Connolly

It's been more than two years since Entourage aired its series finale, but fans of the HBO hit will be happy to hear that the boys will be back – this time on a much larger screen.

Kevin Connolly, who played Vincent Chase's (Adrian Grenier) manager and best friend Eric Murphy for eight seasons, told TMZ Monday that not only is an Entourage movie in the works, but that production on the film will begin as early as January.

"It's gonna happen," Connolly, 39, said. "It's a complicated thing, but I'm in."

Connolly added that he hasn't yet signed a contract to star in the film, but assured that "everything is fine."

The actor also addressed rumors that some of his costars wanted more money to reprise their roles in an Entourage movie. "No, everybody's in line," he said, while teasing the movie: "It's gonna be good ... January, we're gonna do it. It's not official, but it will be."

Just last week, Entourage executive producer Mark Wahlberg was asked about an Entourage movie and suggested the movie was on hold due to "greedy" actors.

"As soon as these guys stop being so greedy," the actor said with a smile, adding that "we want to make it for the fans."

Days later, the show's star Adrian Grenier seemed to respond to Whalberg's comments on Twitter, writing: "It has & never will be about the money for me. I promise I will always stand up for the boys (that includes you) & do what I can to make sure they are treated fairly, and not be taken advantage of by anybody."

He also Tweeted some good news about the movie to a fan: "Start watching the series from season one, and by the time you finish all eight, we should be making the movie."
