This is the day everyone has been waiting for: confirmation that the "Entourage" movie will commence. It is set to begin filming in January 2014, and the core group is all on board - Vince, E, Drama, Turtle, Ari and Lloyd. Am I the only one who has been waiting for this day since the series finale?
Adrian Grenier took to Twitter and Instagram to make this grand announcement late last night.

Grenier also Instagrammed the ‘“Entourage” Code:’ 22 09 03 20 15 18 25. Fans are speculating that this signifies the release date of the feature film - September 3, 2015 or March 20, 2015. I guess we will just have to wait to find out, but who cares as long as it is in the works!? In the meantime, let's recap the 14 most memorable “Entourage” episodes.
1. ‘My Maserati Does 185’ | Season 2, Episode 2 | June 12, 2005
Everyone remembers the night when E f*cked the perfect ten model. Finally, we see a side of E we haven’t seen before. Despite being in a relationship with his psycho bitch of a girlfriend, Kristen, he lets the model “take care of him.”
If there’s anything you remember from this season of “Entourage,” it’s “I never met a guy who didn’t want to f*ck me again in the morning.” Good job, E. This is perhaps the only episode you weren’t a giant pussy.
2. ‘Exodus’ | Season 2, Episode 13 | August 28, 2005
Nothing beats a good Ari Gold speech, and this episode is no exception. Ari announces to Terrence McQuewick’s entire office he will be opening his own agency with two goals in mind: to make everyone on the ground floor rich and to burn the motherf*cking place to the ground. Lloyd, are you with me?
3. ‘Aquamom’ | Season 3, Episode 1 | June 11, 2006
Vince’s mom hates to travel and, as a result, has never been to one of his Hollywood premieres before. After realizing the only woman he wants to accompany him down the red carpet is his mother, Vince takes to the radio to publically put her on the spot: “No cursing, mom. We’re on air.” She gets cold feet but changes her mind just in time, as she descends the plane alongside Turtle and E’s mother.
4. ‘One Day In The Valley’ | Season 3, Episode 2 | June 18, 2006
A series of L.A. rolling blackouts threatens the chances of “Aquaman” beating “Spider-Man” in its opening weekend box office numbers. While Vince, Drama, E and Turtle are stuck in the Valley, they meet two high school nerds at the movie theatre who they help to get into a party. Vince really tops off their days when he hands them the keys to his whip. Oh, and of course, “Aquaman” beats “Spider-Man.”
5. ‘Three’s Company’ | Season 3, Episode 6 | July 16, 2006
Sloan’s friend Tori comes in for a visit and the only person benefiting from this visit is E. In the midst of pot smoke and endless bottles of wine, Sloan and Tori call up E for a threesome. In true E fashion, though, he wakes up cuddling the wrong girl. Oh well, at least he got it in.
6. 'Manic Monday' | Season 3, Episode 15 | April 22, 2007
Most epic speech EVER goes to Ari Gold:
"I didn't go to the Lakers game because they were playing the fucking Bobcats. And I came here today because I thought this was a session on how my wife could learn to communicate, how to answer a question without a question, basic Humanity 101, which, I thought, given your wall of fucking diplomas, you could easily fix, or if you couldn't, you could give her a pill that would either fix it or make her a mute. But now, to turn around and gang up on me? I have work to do. I have hundreds of clients to deal with, and just so we're clear, I don't care about ANY of them. They're all just a number, like wife number one and therapist number seven. GOOD DAY!"
7. ‘Return of the King’ | Season 3, Episode 17 | May 6, 2007
“Medellin” is back on the table for Vince due to a change in casting. Nick Rubenstein and Ari must broker the deal between the studio and Amanda but cannot use cell phones since it is the High Holiday, Yom Kippur. Any episode that focuses on Ari and Mrs. Ari’s relationship is a guaranteed laugh.
8. ‘The Day F*ckers’ | Season 4, Episode 7 | July 29, 2007
This is probably when most people became aware of what the term “furry” means: a person who gets off banging people dressed as stuffed animals. Hey, to each their own. Vince and his brother Johnny made a $5,000 wager of who can get laid first between E and Turtle, which led up to the furry incident.
Needless to say, it wasn’t Turtle who got it on with the furry but Johnny Drama - shocker.
9. ‘The Cannes Kids’ | Season 4, Episode 12 | September 2, 2007
Sucks to suck, boys! “Medellin” was a flop. Should’ve listened to E, since he had this figured out from the beginning. Why would you not sell your film for a guaranteed sum? This is a prime example of when it’s in your best interest to simply play it safe. The only good thing to come out of this episode was Drama getting laid on the beach by a foreigner.
10. ‘Tree Trippers’ | Season 5, Episode 5 | October 5, 2008
Up until this point, there was a steady decline in the amount of time you saw the boys from Queens Boulevard getting stoned. But this episode makes up for it twofold, as the guys head to Joshua Tree and trip shrooms. Vince must make a major career decision; so, to help clear his mind, the guys take a little trip... Yes, pun intended.
11. ‘First Class Jerk’ | Season 5, Episode 8 | October 26, 2008
You would think that it would be Vince who’d get jerked off by a celebrity mid-flight, but nope, it’s Turtle, and the deed is done by none other than Meadow Soprano, a.k.a. Jamie-Lynn Sigler. The fact that the two go on to full-fledge date one another is simply jaw dropping.
12. 'Give A Little Bit' | Season 6, Episode 12 | October 4, 2009
Ari Gold goes "Terminator" in this unforgettable episode. He marches himself into his old company that he just resigned from with a paintball gun and literally starts firing people. With his typical sh*t-eating grin, Ari shows no mercy as he shoots down employee after employee.
13. ‘Lose Yourself’ | Season 7, Episode 10 | September 12, 2010
Vince has earned himself a nasty little cocaine habit that is encroaching on every aspect of his life: his career, his sanity and his love life. Ari’s love life is on the rocks, too, as it appears he finally pushed Mrs. Ari a little too far. Ari puts forth his best efforts to throw her a lavish birthday party, but Mrs. Ari is nowhere to be found. Vince finally hits rock bottom at Eminem’s exclusive party, forcing his friends to send him to rehab.
14. ‘The End’ | Season 8, Episode 8 | September 11, 2011
This episode is the series finale, the last taste we had of our beloved show. Ari makes one last attempt to save and restore his marriage. He quits the agency upon realizing it was the source for all of his marital issues. After escaping to the Amalfi Coast with his wife, he gets a job offer as chairman and chief executive of a studio. The episode ends with no decision made on his part but that is surely where the film will pick up.
