NEW YORK — NEW YORK (AP) — Series creator Doug Ellin says a long-planned "Entourage" movie is finally "a go."

Ellin tweeted the news Monday evening, along with a photo of himself and the cast arm-in-arm. Returning to bring the HBO series to the big screen are stars Jeremy Piven, Adrian Grenier (grehn-YAY'), Jesse Ferrara, Kevin Dillon and Kevin Connolly.

"Entourage" is a light portrait of Hollywood and young stardom that ran for eight seasons on HBO before ending in 2011.

Piven thanked fans on Twitter for their patience. He writes, "Now it's time to go to work!"

Warner Bros. is expected to begin production on the film in January.
