Kate Upton is being "eyed up" for the lead in 'Entourage'.
The 21-year-old model is reportedly in talks to join the new movie adaptation of the popular television series as the love interest for protagonist Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier).
Although the busty blonde is yet to be given a formal role offer, multiple sources have confirmed she is in early negotiations to take on the lead, according to The Wrap.
Kate will join confirmed stars Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven, who have already signed deals to reprise their original roles for the Doug Ellin-directed show.
Ellin appeared to be pessimistic about the film's take-off after there were reports that there was conflict about cast salaries, but he recently insisted the cast were not the reason the movie was being held up.
Ellin confirmed the film is to go ahead after he took to Twitter two weeks ago to share a snap of the cast, which was accompanied with the caption: "It's a go. Love you all."
Shooting for the movie is expected to kick off next year.
