Ricky Gervais has been a busy man. He’s currently in post-production on Life On The Road, the David Brent movie that he’s written, directed and starred in. That’s out in the summer. But he’s also put together another film heading to our screens this year, which would be Special Correspondents.
Again, he’s penned, directed and starred in this one, in this case alongside Eric Bana, Vera Farmiga, Kevin Pollak and Kelly Macdonald. And it’s now been confirmed that Netflix will debut the movie worldwide on April 29th 2016.
The movie tells of a New York-based radio journalist, “whose arrogance and decadent lifestyle has hindered his career. With his job on the line he fakes front line war reports from the comfort of his hideout above a Spanish restaurant in Queens”.
