Cemetery Junction, Ricky Gervais’s Serious Movie, Going Straight to DVD


Cemetery Junction — a coming-of-age drama set in small-town England in the seventies, written and directed by Ricky Gervais along with his Office and Extras partner Stephen Merchant — is going straight to DVD in the U.S. Bummer! It's pretty surprising considering the pedigree and is surely a disappointment for Gervais and Merchant, especially seeing as it's their first big foray out of comedy. If the world makes any sense at all, the duo's consoling themselves right now by taking a dive into a Scrooge McDuck–type money pool brimming with residuals from The Office. [Playlist]
