“I’m a friend first, Boss second. Probably an entertainer third.”
It’s been 12 years since we last saw The Office’s David Brent in action, and the former Wernham Hogg Paper Company boss, and now travelling salesman, has been busily chasing his dream of rock stardom.
Directed, written by and starring Ricky Gervais, ‘David Brent: Life on the Road’ is a feature length mockumentary film which sees a documentary crew catching up with David as he self-finances a UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’.
Assembling a group of session musicians who are just in it for the money, and talented rapper Dom (Ben Bailey Smith) in an attempt to gain street cred, Brent cashes in his pensions and takes unpaid leave in a bid to turn his dream into reality. Get ready to laugh and cringe as we join David Brent on the road as he takes one last shot at fame and fortune.
The film will be released in the UK on August 19, and is coming to New Zealand cinemas on August 25th.
