(TMZ) - It's not official yet, but the "Entourage" movie is 100% happening - in fact, production is expected to kick off as soon as January - so says "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, according to TMZ.

Connolly - who played E on the show - was out in NYC yesterday when TMZ asked about the status of the film.

As TMZ reported, executive producer Mark Wahlberg previously said the project was on hold due to certain "greedy" actors demanding unreasonable sums of money (he didn't specify who) - but it sounds like they've since solved their money issues.

TMZ reports that Connolly now says the project is back on track, and everyone is on board. They're gunning to start production in January. FINALLY. Check the clip for details
