David Brent the character created for the international hit The Office is set hit the big screen.

Ricky Gervais has confirmed his intentions to go into production with a movie based around the life of  David Brent, with production set to commence in 2015.

Life on the Road will catch up with the incredibly awkward Brent 15 years after his redundancy from where the office was set in Wernham Hogg.

The show that launched Ricky Gervais career to a worldwide audience will see Brent as a Sales Rep selling cleaning products up and down the country, although he still has his dream of being a rock star.

The movie follows him along on a self-financed tour that sees Brent digging into his pension to keep performances going. It will be shot in a mockumentary style similar to The Office, with Brent initially under the impression he’s the subject of a flattering, big-budget rock documentary. In fact, it’s more of a “Where are they now?” production, which should lead to some comedic gold and have audiences feeling sorry for the guy all over again.

The office ran from 2001 to 2003, since then Gervais has reprised the role of Brent for a Christmas special, comic relief and in the hugely successful US remake of the office in a cameo role.
