Gervais wants to bring Brent to the big screen…
THR reports that Ricky Gervais is planning on making a movie based on his famous character, David Brent, from The Office.
The character originated in the UK version of the show. Gervais later made cameo appearances as Brent in the US version of the series. Gervais also revived the character again for a comic relief special and a series of YouTube videos, Learn Guitar With David Brent. Gervais is also planning on signing a record deal for Brent as well as a series of charity concerts where he would perform as the character.
The David Brent movie would reportedly be about Brent trying to "make it in the music industry."
