Ricky Gervais’ David Brent movie is coming to a Netflix near you


Those of you who like Ricky Gervais and his brand of God-hating comedy will revel in the news that his character from The Office U.K. will be back in his own movie. David Brent will be so David Brent in David Brent: Life on the Road. The movie will also be in the same mockumentary style as the original The Office. Netflix is set to accept its umpteenth Gervais feature following the Derek series, that Special Correspondents thing and probably some other stuff. The Wrap reported the news via the Opie Show on which Gervais said “This is exciting news and this is top secret, so I’m going to say it now: Netflix has bought out the rest of the world again, which is great for me, because I’d rather 20 million people see it than half a million people see it cinemas, do you know what I mean? Because I want to do tours off the back of it. So for me, it’s great.” The movie has been in the works for some time. Last summer, the movie was said to head to U.K. theaters this August. Check out the teaser for the movie below.
