The Fighter star serves as an executive producer on the popular comedy drama, which is loosely based on his own early experiences in Hollywood.

Talk of an Entourage movie has been circulating for some time and the show's stars - Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon - are all keen to reprise their characters for a movie version.

And Wahlberg has vowed to put up the cash himself if studio bosses take too long to move forward with the idea, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Show creator and writer Doug Ellin says, "We're going to do a movie; it's a question of when and how quickly."

Wahlberg adds, "I said If I had to finance it myself, I'd do it."

The eighth and final season of the show began airing in the U.S. last week (24Jul11).
