The film will be directed by the show's creator, Doug Ellin, who was also the executive producer along with Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. The series' stars - Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillion and Jeremy Piven - are all working to close deals for the film. There is no word yet on a plot.
