“The Office” is returning — well, the original British version is, at least: Ricky Gervais is making a movie about his hapless paper salesman David Brent called “Life on the Road,” scheduled to go into production in 2015.
According to The Telegraph, the movie will follow Brent’s life in the 15 years after “The Office.” The mockumentary will catch up with the Gervais character as he continues to dream of rock stardom while selling cleaning products by day.
“He thinks it’ll be like Scorsese filming the Rolling Stones, but it turns out to be a ‘where are they now’ documentary,” says a release. “He has to take a few weeks off work and cash in a couple of pensions, because the session musicians int he band are costing him more than he’s getting in ticket sales. Tragic.”
The film will be shot in the U.K. and will likely feature some of the original “Office” costars.
