The bros of Entourage will indeed hit the big screen: After it was rumored yesterday that deals were almost in place, show creator Doug Ellin confirmed the Entourage movie is happening, tweeting "It's a go. Love You all" alongside a picture of the show's cast.

Just yesterday, actor Jerry Ferrara, who played Turtle, said on The Wendy Williams Show that the film version of the HBO series – which ended its run in 2011 – was "looking real good" and that a deals with the show's other stars (Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Kevin Connoly) could be struck by the end of the day.

According to Deadline, every actor has agreed to terms, though details remain sketchy. While Warner Bros. gave the movie a green light back in January, contract negotions reporetedly became heated after Jeremy Piven signed a deal  in August that promised him some of the movie's backend, causing the other actors to clamor for a chunk of that change as well.

Ferrara told Williams yesterday that the issues  weren't so much about money, but scheduling: "Here's what I'll say about holdouts: Athletes hold out when they have a contract they don't want to honor. No one's holding out. It just takes a little time. We're actually on schedule."

The film is set to begin shooting in January 2014, after Piven wraps up work on his ITV/PBS show Mr. Selfridge, a schedule set by Warner Bros. so that the film will be eligible for a 20 percent California tax credit to keep its budget under $30 million.
