Ricky Gervais reprises his role as David Brent in Life on the Road trailer – watch


Ricky Gervais has reprised his most famous role in the first teaser trailer for his latest film, Life on the Road.

The mockumentary follows the latest career-aspiring exploits of The Office‘s notoriously controversial manager, David Brent, as he tries to chase his dreams of being a rockstar… whilst also chasing commissions.

“You probably know me from the BBC documentary, The Office,” he says to camera. “That was then, this is now. I’m currently a singer songwriter… And a rep.”

The trailer also treats us to one of Brent’s latest attempts at song-writing, with a rock’n’roll track that acts as a crude “metaphor” for sex.

Also starring Doc Brown, Jo Hartley, Andy Burrows, Nina Sosanya and Peter Andre, Life on the Road is set to hit UK cinemas on 19th August.

Watch the trailer below.
