Stop everything, there's going to be a film based on 'The Office'

Ricky Gervais is resurrecting his most famous creation, David Brent, in a spin-off film featuring the cringe-worthy The Office character.

Life On The Road will focus on Brent’s attempts to make it as a rockstar after being sacked from Slough paper merchants Wernham Hogg.

“He thinks it’ll be like Scorsese doing the Rolling Stones, but we’ll show the full horror. He’s had to take two weeks off work and cash in his pension, because the session musicians in the band are costing him more than he’s getting in ticket sales,” Gervais told The Guardian.

BBC films and Entertainment One are backing the new project, which will come to the big screen more than 10 years after the BBC2 show finished.

Expect to see Brent in a cinema near you in 2016.
