A trailer for the film David Brent: Life on the Road based on the main character of the UK TV series The Office has been released and it looks hilarious.
The film is written and directed by Ricky Gervais, who reprises his role of the character David Brent, made famous in Gervais’ own TV series The Office back in 2001.
The UK version of The Office only lasted three seasons but was a huge success for Gervais, spawning an american remake with Steve Carrell and also catapulting Gervais into the limelight.
Going by the trailer, the film will follow Brent’s life, after his time working in the office.
He’s now on the road with his band, doing what he loves best – entertaining.
The character of Brent was the best thing about the original TV series and it appears Gervais hasn’t lost any of that original character’s quirks.
The trailer below is hilarious and should please all of the original Office fans, but anyone being introduced to the character for the first time and the mockumentary style in which the film is shot should also enjoy it.
The film is scheduled to be released on 19 August 2016 in the UK and here’s hoping we get it not much longer after that in Australia.
A camera crew catches up with David Brent, the former star of the fictional British series, “The Office” as he now fancies himself a rockstar on the road.
