While many of next summer’s movies are still being filmed, one highly anticipated project is almost done. Entourage, the upcoming feature film based on the popular HBO television series, is almost ready for big screens everywhere. After finishing principle photography, Entourage creator Doug Ellin put together a screening of a rough cut for Mark Wahlberg, who produced both the show and the film.

“I just saw the movie. It’s fantastic. The stakes are so big. You’re rooting for these guys to succeed,” said the Transformers: Age of Extinction star after his viewing. “There’s so much humor and heart in it and Doug just did an amazing job. I don’t think we’re going to be able to wait a year to release the movie. We’re going to show the studio sooner, rather than later. If it makes most sense to wait until June, we’ll wait until June.” With Wahlberg wanting to unleash it before the already predetermined release date of June 2015, he says that Ellin should start thinking about ideas for a sequel.

Although some might chase a quick paycheck to cash in on an existing property, Ellin has taken his time crafting the film adaptation, which centers on star Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) becoming a director. Although the film hasn’t been seen by many, it’s never to early to start planning a sequel.
