Sony joins Gervais’ PRU
Sony has boarded Ricky Gervais’ THE MEN AT THE PRU.
Pic will be the second U.K. production to come out of the Sony Intl. Motion Picture Production Group, run by Deborah Schindler.
Project is a coming-of-age tale about a group of men working at an insurance company in the 1970s.
Gervais is co-writing, directing and producing with longtime creative partner Stephen Merchant.
The two previously worked together on TV skeins THE OFFICE and EXTRAS, as well as a radio show in the U.K.
Gervais will also have a supporting role in the pic, which is set to go into production later this summer.
