Ricky Gervais is resurrecting his The Office character David Brent once again, this time in the form of the Office movie. Official confirmation has arrived that Gervais plans on shooting a feature film spinoff of The Office next year, with the story following David Brent going on the road as a musician. Titled Life on the Road, the BBC Films production picks up 15 years after we last saw Brent, who is now a sales rep selling cleaning products up and down the country. Shot mockumentary-style like The Office, the film finds Brent being followed on his self-financed UK tour that sees him following his dream of becoming a rock star. The pic will be filmed in the UK, but is poised to have a worldwide release.
That’s about all the information we have at the moment, but fans of The Office—and Brent in particular—should be pleased to hear that a full film is on the way. Check out an image of Gervais in character for Life on the Road after the jump, along with the press release.
