Mark Wahlberg has blamed greed for holding up plans for a big screen adaptation of his hit series Entourage, suggesting the stars of the show are demanding too much money to reprise their roles.

The Tv drama, created by director Doug Ellin and executive produced by Wahlberg, starred Adrian Grenier as hotshot actor Vincent Chase with Kevin Connolly as his manager, Eric 'E' Murphy, and Jeremy Piven as his agent, Ari Gold, alongside fellow cast members Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara.

Entourage wrapped its eighth and final season on America's HBO network in 2011, and each member of the main cast has expressed an interest in reprising their roles for a film version of the comedy-drama.

Ellin was officially given the green light by Warner Bros. executives to press ahead with his film plans in January (13), but the project has since stalled and Wahlberg reveals money demands are at the centre of the delay.

He has stopped short of naming and shaming the actors holding up the film, but insists they should only be motivated to star in the movie by their fans.

He tells, "As soon as them (sic) guys stop being so greedy. We just want to make sure, it's one of those things where if the movie's a success, we'll get to make a lot more of them and then we'll probably make a lot of money..."

"But we wanna make it for the fans... It's the most I've ever been asked for a movie."
