After filming in Toronto last spring, Ricky Gervais’ English Adaptation of French Comedy Special Correspondents is ready for the World to see. Some new images from the Netflix Movie have just surfaced.
Special Correspondents, a new Netflix original feature Film was written and directed by Ricky Gervais and starring Eric Bana (Deliver Us From Evil, Lone Survivor) and Gervais (Muppets Most Wanted, Derek) is about a struggling 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.
That time we met Ricky while he was in town working on SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTShere…
SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS streams on Netflix Canada Friday, April 29, 2016.
English Actor, Musician, Writer, Director, Animal Rights Activist and overall amazing person Ricky Gervais has landed! Although he was in town recently location scouting for new Film SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS, the Funnyman is back for a quick visit to prepare for production on the Film. The Wartime Satire is an Adaptation of the French Film of the same name.
Many of us know him for his work on the British version of The Office, a string of successful Films in North America including Muppets Most Wanted and acclaimed Netflix Series Derek, but the three-time Golden Globes Host is tirelessly raising awareness via Social Media for ethical treatment of Animals and in 2013 was named PETA‘s Person of the Year.
Gervais arrived from England in Toronto tonight with his longtime Partner, Author Jane Fallon. Both were all smiles after a long flight, stopping graciously for Photos with Fans before heading into their SUV. Despite his joking about his weight gain on Social Media, Gervais looked great, rocking a New York Yankees Ballcap!
