Doug Ellin, creator of the TV show, directs this feature film that follows on from the last season. Adrian Grenier stars as actor Vincent Chase, who, with the financial backing of former agent and newly-appointed studio head Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), is able to make his directorial debut. Ari encounters problems, however, when the film goes over budget, while Vincent takes his usual carefree approach to the situation. He is supported by his entourage - his half brother Johnny 'Drama' Chase (Kevin Dillon) and friends Salvatore 'Turtle' Assante (Jerry Ferrara) and Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly), who is also Vincent's manager. The rest of the cast includes Billy Bob Thornton, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Haley Joel Osment with cameo appearances by, among others, Jessica Alba, Liam Neeson, Armie Hammer, Calvin Harris, Ronda Rousey and Mark Wahlberg.
