Cadillac Ciel Stars In New Entourage Movie: Video
Fans left unfulfilled by the series finale of the hit HBO series Entourage should be delighted to hear that everyone’s favorite loudmouthed and bigheaded talent agent will make his triumphant return to Hollywood in the upcoming Entourage movie. The film will also feature a variety of luxurious Caddys, including the outrageously opulent Ciel concept car, as seen in this four-minute teaser.
The short gives a bit of backstory to Ari’s week-long retirement in Italy, where extended lunches on the veranda and grape stomping can’t quite compete with his former life in LA. But that all changes when a strange doppelganger appears, prompting an end to Ari’s European exodus.
“Ari’s un-retirement is something we know fans are excited about and I’m thrilled Cadillac was able to help tell that story,” said Doug Ellin, writer, director and producer of Entourage.
Followers of the show will remember the extent of the automaker’s involvement, and it should come as no surprise that Cadillac will continue that support into the new film. In addition to the Ciel, the ELR electric coupe is also expected to make an appearance, not to mention the ever-present Escalade.
The Entourage movie is slated for release June 3rd.
First revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the Ciel (which means “sky” in French) is an appropriate vehicle for the likes of Vince, Turtle, Drama and E. it’s a drop-top tourer with enough legroom to sprint in, stretched to impossible lengths in homage to the old days of Cadillac luxury.
Although it recalls historical cues, the Ciel is undoubtedly modern, with lines that are perfectly in tune with current Cadillac language, 22-inch wheels, and LED lighting. Suicide doors aid ingress and egress to each of its four seats, which should help smooth out any red carpet premiere entrance. A 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6 augmented by a lithium ion hybrid system makes the go, with 425 horsepower required to outrun persistent bike-riding agents.
