DAYBREAK begins with a wild vehicle chase – not too surprising, as it’s directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar – then flashes back to show us how Ben (Ryan Eggold), living in a mobile home park after turning his back on conventional success, gets entangled in a web that involves his late father, a twelve-sided dodecahedron and a secret society. The far-reaching themes are a hallmark of DAYBREAK’s co-creator/executive producer Tim Kring (TOUCH, HEROES). What is most unusual about DAYBREAK, with its high production values and pedigree on both sides of the camera – besides Eggold (ENTOURAGE, 90210), stars include […]Read On »

At today’s HBO TCA session for the final season of ENTOURAGE, the question of whether a movie will happen based on the popular series was a major topic for discussion. Creator Doug Elin confirms it will be a reality at some point. “We’re going to do a movie,” says Elin. “We’re going to do it, [but not sure] how quick, and hopefully we’ll come up with an idea and make it happen.” Executive producer Mark Wahlberg adds he’ll make it happen if he has to put up the dough himself. “I’ve said if I had to finance it myself I […]Read On »
