David Brent is back in an Office in new stills from The Office spin-off feature film 'David Brent: Life on the Road'

This week is week 4 of filming on Ricky Gervais' latest project 'David Brent: Life on the Road' according to Ricky Gervais' blog.
The story so far, is that David Brent is touring on the road with his band Foregone Conclusion (with former We are Scientists and Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows) and rapper 'Dom' played by Ben Bailey Smith. 'Dom' was also featured in David Brent's Equality Street video.

This week, according to his blog, Ricky is filming all the storylines to do with his job as a sales rep and he is back in an 'Office' setting, but with a whole new cast. 
Ricky has tweeted a couple of pictures so far and he has revealed that David Brent now works for a company called 'Lavichem', sounds glamourous we know.

Ricky also posted this  picture from inside his new office with the caption "Great to be back in the office. A new dawn.

This new 'Dawn' get it? is of course British actress Mandeep Dhillon who has appeared in BBC Three comedy 'Some Girls' as well as more recently in the play 'Anita and Me'.  
Even though this film may not have any of the original The Office cast except for David Brent, from this image it appears that Brent is still having the same effect on his staff and is as 'Brentertaining' as ever. Other cast members include Jo Hartley from 'This is England' fame and Abbie Murphy an up and coming British comedienne as well as Andrew Brooke who is well known for playing 'Ashley' in Channel 4 comedy Phoneshop and Tom Bennett who played Christopher in Phoneshop as well as having various other roles.

The full cast list was published by Radio Times a few weeks back and can be seen here
The film is produced by Charlie Hanson and written and directed by Ricky Gervais, with eOne films and BBC films being the distributors.
There is only one more week to go until the film wraps and we hope to see it on our screens worldwide around August 19th 2016; with fans also being promised an album and some more live gigs (possibly worldwide).

Bring on the hilarious cringeworthy awkwardness, the Brent-isms and the singing. 
Cannot bloody wait!
