Ricky Gervais to Produce David Brent Movie with BBC


Ricky Gervais is to produce a feature film centering on David Brent, the character he played in the original BBC version of TV comedy series “The Office.”

The movie, “Life on the Road,” will follow Brent’s progress in the 15 years since leaving the company at the center of the TV show. Brent will be seen working as a travelling salesman in order to fund a U.K. concert tour as he pursues his dream of becoming a rock star, the BBC reported Tuesday.

The film, which the BBC is developing, will take the form of a mockumentary. Brent believes it to be a rockumentary, in the style of Martin Scorsese’s Rolling Stones docu “Shine a Light,” but it turns out the crew are shooting a “Where are they now?” documentary, tracking down the original characters from “The Office.”

The pic is set to go into production next year.
