Could The Office Hit the Box Office?

Well, we just finished telling you about Ricky Gervais making his film debut on Christopher Guest’s new movie. Might we next see him take The Office to the big screen? According to the Hollywood Reporter, the BBC is interested in turning a few series, including Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s Office and/or latest series Extras, as well as Little Britain into feature film projects. No word yet on if Gervais or Merchant would actually sign on for another Office project, or Extras for that matter. I would think that the latter would get the two more excited, escpecially considering the fact that when we last left Gervais aka David Brent, he was no longer collecting a paycheck from Wernham-Hogg. An Office prequel perhaps?

Tip off from Televisionary

And while I’m on the subject…deep within the vast YouTube archives is a brilliant TV special (cut into 5 sections) featuring Gervais and Larry David of Curb your Enthusiasm, just kicking it, talking comedy. If you haven’t seen it yet, you really ought to.

Edit 7/10: Removed the link to the Gervais/David interview, as YouTube took it down. Anyone have a link to it elsewhere?
