Ricky Gervais 'Planning David Brent: The Movie'
The Office character could stage a comeback on the big screen...
Ricky Gervais has revealed that he hopes to make a movie based on his most-famous character David Brent.
The star and creator of The Office has given a lengthy interview to The Hollywood Reporter, in which he explained that the recent return of Brent in a series of web shorts was part of a bigger plan.
THR reports that he "plans to sign a record deal for his Office character, whom he recently revived through his YouTube series Learn Guitar With David Brent".
And it explains: "The instalments began as a stunt for charity, but Gervais hopes they will be the basis for a movie about Brent trying to make it in the music industry."
Gervais is claimed to be rehearsing with a band for a series of high-profile charity gigs later this year, in which he will appear in character as Brent.
