Ricky Gervais returns as David Brent once again in a movie based off British mockumentary sitcom show The Office (which the U.S. version is based off of). David Brent: Life on the Road, as previewed back in April, follows the former paper company general manager 12 years after the original show. Brent, who seems to have not changed one bit, is now a traveling salesman for a ladies’ personal hygiene and cleaning products company on the road with his band Foregone Conclusion and a rapper named Dom. In an attempt to gain street cred, Brent, who is the singer-songwriter of the band, cashes all his pensions for a shot at fame, fortune and street cred.
Starring, written and directed by, and featuring original music and lyrics from Ricky Gervais, David Brent: Life on the Road is set to hit theaters in the UK and Ireland on August 19 followed by an undisclosed date in the U.S. through Netflix.
