Kate Upton is reportedly being considered for the female lead role in the upcoming "Entourage" movie, based on the successful HBO series that concluded in September 2011.

The 21-year-old blonde model and actress is known for her multiple appearances in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and for gracing the cover of Vanity Fair's 100th Anniversary edition among other notable appearances.

Upton has yet to be officially offered a role in the film, however, her name has been floated by Warner Brothers, several sources close to the film told TheWrap.com.

When approached about the speculation earlier in the week, Warner Bros. had no comment, TheWrap reported.

An Upton representative, however, reportedly acknowledged that the model turned actress had been reached out to earlier in the year by the film's producers to join the cast.

Upton has appeared in such films as "Tower Heist" and "The Three Stooges."

Production on the film is said to begin in early 2014.

The film will be directed by Doug Ellin, who served as both executive producer and head writer on the HBO TV series.

Ellin will be joined on the set by the show's five main actors, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly, Jesse Ferrara, Jeremy Piven, and Adrian Grenier.

Production on the film had been delayed for months due to some actors holding out for more money. The contracts were finalized in October, which prompted Ellin to tweet a photo of himself with his cast with the caption: "It's a go. love you all."

The film will apparently focus on Piven's character Ari Gold and his new career as a studio head, TheWrap reported.
