The Office’s David Brent is set to return in a brand new film being developed by Ricky Gervais and BBC Films.
Life on the Road, due to go into production next year, finds Brent selling cleaning products up and down the country while still harbouring dreams being a rock star.
Brent is followed on his self-financed UK tour. He thinks it’ll be like Scorsese filming the Rolling Stones, but it turns out to be a “where are they now” documentary.
He has to take a few weeks off work and cash in a couple of pension, because the session musicians in the band are costing him more than he’s getting in ticket sales. Tragic.
A spokesperson said the movie will be shot in the UK but distributed worldwide “due to its global appeal”.
