Ricky Gervais to return to 'The Office' for Netflix movie

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Ricky Gervais is reopening "The Office" for a spinoff movie to stream on Netflix.

The service announced Thursday that it has acquired the film, in which Gervais will reprise the painfully awkward David Brent. In "David Brent: Life on the Road," a documentary crew catches up with the former boss 12 years after "The Office." Brent is now a traveling salesman pursuing his rock 'n' roll dreams with his band Foregone Conclusion.

The film will premiere in most counties on Netflix next year, but will receive a theatrical release in August in the U.K, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Gervais, who recently released his film "Special Correspondents" with Netflix, said he's "so glad the mighty Netflix have once again outbid all competitors in North America to show my movie exclusively."
