The 'Entourage' movie is go, according to show star Jerry Ferrara.

Ferrara, who plays street-smart Turtle in the show, put paid to lurid stories of behind-the-scenes money demands to bed via Twitter.

He said:



Earlier in the day, during an interview with talk show host Wendy Williams, he'd said: “It's looking good. It's looking real good. It could be closed today.

“I could go look at my phone right now, and it's done. It's real close. We're hoping to shoot in January.”

He then confirmed the news last night, as did writer and director Doug Ellin, with a tweet reading:



It follows quotes from Mark Wahlberg, who produced the original show, that it was 'greed' that had brought negotiations to a halt.

When asked earlier this month when the film would be coming out, he said: “As soon as them guys stop being so greedy.

“It's one of those things where if the movie is a success, then we'll get to make a lot more of them and everybody will make a lot more money.”

It had been rumoured that both Ferrara and Adrian Grenier, who plays the lead Vince, had been seeking larger fees after Jeremy Piven, who plays the fearsome agent Ari Gold, was said to have got a bigger cut.
