Adrian Grenier on 'Entourage' movie 'greed': It's not about the money
Perhaps the sticking point in the "Entourage" movie has finally been discovered. After executive producer Mark Wahlberg said greed was holding the movie up, fans weren't sure where to look. In the days that followed, Jerry Ferrara (Turtle) and Kevin Connolly (Eric) both spoke about their excitement to do the movie, with Ferrara even saying he'd sign on for free.
Then came Adrian Grenier (Vince). Grenier went to Instagram to discuss his stance on the "Entourage" movie, and it's rather telling.
"To all 'Entourage' fans. I owe it to you to make a couple things clear. I take my role as Vince on the show & off very seriously. All decisions I make personally & for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. 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. The spirit of 'Entourage' is about sharing the opportunities given to us and I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY. I assure you, despite the perception, there is no greed in my heart. Remember, it will all work out in the end. It always does."
It sounds like Grenier is the holdout, but his reasoning is sound. He wants to make sure everyone gets their fair share of the profits, should the movie be a hit. This comes at the same time as Connolly saying that "everybody is in line" and the movie will start in January, so who knows what's really going on?
