Take a look tot he first official posters of David Brent Life on the Road, the upcoming comedy movie written and directed by Ricky Gervais which catches up with David Brent, the former star of the British TV series, “The Office” as he now fancies himself a rockstar on the road:
I’m a friend first, boss second. Probably an entertainer third.
“Twelve years ago, David Brent (Ricky Gervais) was a regional manager for a mid-level paper merchants. On 19 August 2016, get ready to see him on the big screen as he chases fame and fortune in DAVID BRENT: LIFE ON THE ROAD.
David Brent is now a rep selling cleaning products up and down the country. The thing is he has never really given up the dream of being a rock star, and in this documentary movie we follow his one last shot at fame. We find out what he’s been up to since his days at Wernham Hogg and we follow him on the road trying to get a record deal. He puts a band together (a group of mercenary session musicians taking his money with absolutely no love for him or his dream) and ropes poor Dom (a rapper who he was meant to be managing) into coming on tour with him to give him a bit of credibility. Let down after let down, faux pas after faux pas Brent never gives up his dream… just his hard earned money and a cashed in pension to fund the whole folly. With original music by the man himself Life on The Road is like a comedy musical. It’s exciting, funny, excruciating and a little sad.”
We also have three pictures from the set:
