Model-actress Kate Upton is circling the female lead in Warner Bros.' Entourage movie. An official offer hasn't been issued yet, but sources indicate that she is in early discussions to join the cast.
Kate Upton eyed for the female lead in the Entourage movie
If a deal is finalized, she will play the love interest of Adrian Grenier's Vincent Chase, although it isn't known if she will be appearing as herself or a fictional character. During Entourage's seven-season run on HBO, several celebrities and filmmakers appeared as themselves such as James Cameron, Matt Damon, series executive producer Mark Wahlberg and many more.
We reported last month that Warner Bros. finally gave the long-awaited movie the green light, after lengthy negotiations with cast members Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven were finalized. Production is scheduled to begin this coming January in Los Angeles.
Doug Ellin is directing from his own original screenplay, although no story details have been given. While best known for her work as a model in commercials and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, Kate Upton has also starred in The Three Stooges and the upcoming The Other Woman.
Entourage comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Billy Bob Thornton, Ronda Rousey, Haley Joel Osment. The film is directed by Doug Ellin.
