It’s not HBO (any longer), it’s a movie, an Entourage movie

Eight seasons on HBO were not enough for the man-boys of Entourage.

Director Doug Ellin and cast member Jerry Ferrara (“Turtle”) announced the news Monday via their Twitter feeds that the big-screen continuation to their cable TV series was all set and ready to proceed into production. Pretty much.

From Ferrara: “I am proud to announce the #Entourage movie is officially a GO! Have to thank @wbpictures and @HBO for all the support to make this happen! On behalf of the 4 guys I wanna also thank the #entourage fans for the patience. The BOYS are BACK. ” it always works out.”

And from Ellin: “It’s a go. Love you all.”

Vince and the boys and even Ari — Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly and Jeremy Piven — all are presumably on board now to make the movie happen.

A deal long has been presumed since the HBO series aired its finale on Sept. 11, 2011. And a tax credit from the state of California has been dangling in front of them, should they and Warner Bros. go into production by January 2014.

Expect lots of hugging it out and happy endings.

Isn’t that always the case for these boys?
