 Ricky Gervais to Reprise Role of David Brent for Feature Film


“A good idea is a good idea forever” – David Brent

Earlier this week the 53 year old multi award winning actor/director/comedian shocked everyone, by announcing he would be reprising his role as the office buffoon David Brent, from his career launching  and game changing Television show The Office.

Ricky created The Office with Stephen Merchant from the ground up nurturing every aspect of the production. The show ran (as it was always intended too) for two seasons and Christmas special and has become one of the UK’s most iconic, successful and much loved comedy series of all time.

The film titled ‘Life on the Road‘ will be shot in the same mockumentary style as the series and will follow Brent 15 years on. The narrative will be centred around Brent as he makes a last ditch attempt to become that rock star he has always seen himself as.

Ricky went on to say:

“[Brent] thinks it’ll be like Scorsese doing the Rolling Stones, but we’ll show the full horror,” he’s had to take two weeks off work and cash in his pension, because the session musicians in the band are costing him more than he’s getting in ticket sales.”

Production is due to being in 2015 and is backed by BBC once again.

Do you know which philosopher said that? Dolly Parton. And people say she’s just a big pair of tits” – David Brent

You can catch Ricky Gervais as Derek in the Channel 4 series which is now on Netflix

    I hope Stephen Merchant is involved. Whatever happens though, I cannot wait to see Brent again.

      Id imagine he will be, seeing as he’s co-creator of the show. Gervais as Brent is hands down my favourite comedy character of all time. Yes I am excited 🙂
