What's David Brent been up to since he left The Office? Life On The Road, starring Ricky Gervais, will pick up the story...

The latest crossover from British television to the big screen is set to see the return of arguably Ricky Gervais' most famous creation, David Brent. Brent, the character at the heart of The Office (the original version!), will feature in Life On The Road. It's a film that's set to pick up what's happened to him in the 15 years since The Office.

The official statement from BBC Films confirms this, stating that "we find out what Brent is doing now and what's happened in the last 15 years since his redundancy from his beloved Wernham Hogg. He's a sales rep now, selling cleaning products up and down the country, but has never really given up on his dream of being a rock star". As such, he'll be on a self-financed UK tour, and Life On The Road will follow him as he travels the country.

Production on the film will take place in 2015, and we'd imagine the film will be in cinemas next year too.
