David Brent has been out of sight for a long time. But that will change this summer when Ricky Gervais brings the former paper company manager back in a movie titled David Brent: Life on the Road. The above trailer, released over the weekend, is the first look at the movie that takes the office out of The Office.
The not-so-lovingly misguided Brent has followed his love of music since the end of the documentary about Wernham Hogg Paper Company. Now, the camera crew is following Brent's band, Foregone Conclusion, on the road as he attempts to be, or at least act like, a rock star.
Brent's love of music was well documented during the two seasons the show ran in the U.K., including in-office hits like "Free Love Freeway" and proclamations that he's basically a "chilled out entertainer." So, the plot isn't entirely out of nowhere.
