David Brent is cuming back (sic). Later this year, we’ll see Ricky Gervais return as David Brent, in a big screen spin-off to The Office. Time has passed and the former manager of the Wernham Hogg, isn’t working in an office anymore. He’s following his dreams by trying to become a famous singer/songwriter.
David Brent:Life on the road sees the highly anticipated big screen debut of one of comedy’s best-loved characters, David Brent (Ricky Gervais). The film catches up with Brent twelve years on from the BBC mockumentary ‘The Office’ to find he is now a travelling salesman with Lavichem, a cleaning and ladies’ personal hygiene products company. However, he hasn’t given up on his dream of rock stardom and is about to embark on a self-financed UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’.
Assembling a group of session musicians who are just in it for the money, and talented rapper Dom (Ben Bailey Smith) in an attempt to gain street cred, Brent cashes in his pensions and takes unpaid leave in a bid to turn his dream into reality. Get ready to join David Brent on the road as he takes one last shot at fame and fortune.
DAVID BRENT: LIFE ON THE ROAD is written, directed by and stars Ricky Gervais, with original music and lyrics by Gervais, musical arrangement by Andy Burrows (Razorlight, We Are Scientists) and raps by Ben Bailey Smith.
David Brent:Life on the road is out in August.
