I was a big fan of Ricky Gervais’ The Office — first the original UK comedy on BBC, than the US version starring Steve Carrell.
Its now a film ostensibly about White, Middle Class angst, but to me its merely an opportunity to revisit a series of hilarious characters. Note that Chris Martin of Coldplay (guest on HBO’s Extras with Gervais) did the music for the soundtrack together with him.
Netflix has acquired U.S. international rights — the film will premiere on Netflix in 2017.
Of course its going to be a “one-note comedy,” but Gervais fans do not care . . .
