david brent movie

Ricky Gervais has revealed some new details on his Office spinoff movie, Life on the Road, and it’ll be music to the ears of fans.

Life on the Road is a mock-documentary that’ll revolve around David Brent, the character Gervais played on The Office. It’ll catch up with the former office manager a few years after the show’s conclusion as Brent continues his quest to become a rock star. That much we already knew.

Last week, the comedian/writer/director was on Sirius XM’s Opie and Jim Norton show and described the film as “almost a musical.” He’s currently writing songs and the script for the film with the hopes to have it in theaters in the next 18 months to two years.

Muppets Most Wanted review

The Muppets are nothing if not self-aware, and Muppets Most Wanted opens with a promising joke. Picking up just moments after the last movie left off, Kermit and company launch into a jaunty, toe-tapping musical number that acknowledges all the pitfalls of a follow-up. “We’re doing a sequel,” they sing. “That’s what we do in Hollywood / And everybody knows that the sequel’s never quite as good!”

But all the knowingness in the world can’t save the Muppets from the actual pitfalls of doing a sequel. In the end, Kermit’s early admission feels more like a warning than a joke. Muppets Most Wanted isn’t bad; in some parts, it’s very good. Still, it struggles to match the highs that the first one hit so easily.

/Film Visits The Set Of ‘Muppets Most Wanted’

muppets most wanted

On May 6th 2013, I ventured downtown to visit the set of The Muppets 2 (now titled Muppets Most Wanted). Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a huge Jim Henson fanatic and love love love The Muppets. One of the greatest results of starting this site was being invited to the set of a Muppet movie and getting to talk to Kermit and the gang. For 2011′s The Muppets, we were on set to watch the Muppets drive up to the ABC (disney-owned) news station in a car. For Muppets Most Wanted, I got to see dozens of Muppets about to board a train at Union Station. I’m thinking that I might just be lucky enough to watch the Muppets exit a plane onto the tarmac at LAX if they ever make another Muppets film.
