Ricky Gervais’ ‘Office’ Movie Spinoff Bought by Open Road

Open Road has bought U.S. rights to “Life on the Road,” Ricky Gervais’ spinoff movie from his British TV series “The Office.”

“Life on the Road” will be directed, written by and star Gervais. It will be centered on a documentary crew catching up with Gervais’ David Brent character — now working as a traveling salesman — as he chases his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a U.K. tour with his band Foregone Conclusion.

“David Brent getting a big U.S. theatrical release?” Gervais said. “He can die happy now.”

The story is too old to be commented.

With Gervais at the helm and everything I know it will be very funny even when it's not suppose to be.
