New York: After a successful run on television, hit drama `Entourage` is set for the big screen.

The TV show about the shenanigans of a movie star and his friends in Hollywood will wrap up after the coming season but the producers are planning to reunite the cast in a
film, reported a website.

Jeremy Piven who plays the abrasive agent Ari Goldman has confirmed that a film is indeed in the offing.

"Could we do more? Absolutely. And people`s biggest complaint is that there needs to be more show, it`s not long enough. So I think that we`re set up pretty nicely for a movie," said the Golden Globe winning actor.

A film about the crew from Queens transplanted to glitzy Hollywood has been the subject of speculation since last summer, when HBO announced that the series would be ending.

In December, executive producer Mark Wahlberg further stoked the speculation, saying, "We have one last season left on TV and then it would probably take place after the finale. There are places to go."
