Ricky Gervais To Bring David Brent To The Big Screen

A good idea is a good idea, forever…

He’s already, er, a world-class comedian, dancer and middle-manager – but David Brent is now starring in a new movie called Life On The Road

Ricky Gervais’ cringe comedy clown from The Office is leaving the bright lights of Slough behind him and hitting ‘the circuit’ as a sales rep (but still trying to be a rock star). 
 
According to the film crew following him, it’ll be a simple “where are they now” documentary. According to Brent, it’ll be “like Scorsese filming the Rolling Stones”…
 
It’s been 11 years since we last saw Brent on our screens (unless you count a few charity shows and his cameo in the American Office) and a lot has changed in the interim. Most importantly – In The Loop, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and two Inbetweeners movies. On the other hand, we’ve also had Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie and Keith Lemon: The Film
 
But if anyone can negotiate the stormy waters between Brit-com gold and big screen glory, it’s Brent – probably with a fusion of “Flashdance and MC Hammer shit”…
 

Excited about seeing Brent’s big movie? Tell us below.

      How is he going to get the cast back from The Office? Brent on his own as we have seen on Comic Relief just doesn't hit the same heights.

      Talk about past its sell by date. I liked The Office but it's way too late to do a movie about Brent, Gervais should just leave the character alone now.

      I thought The Office ended on a perfect note. I don't really need to see any of those characters again. Brent was incredibly hilarious, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea.

      He needs to move on and try making a decent TV show again. Derek is not funny.
