There is life after Watchmen! Matthew Goode, who surprised me as Ozymandias in Zack Snyder’s criminally underloved adaptation of Alan Moore’s comic, has signed on to appear in Cemetery Junction, the feature film that reunites The Office and Extras geniuses Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
The Hollywood Reporter has a smidgen more info on the film, which we told you about last week. According to the trade the film will center on insurance salesmen in 1970s London; Goode will be playing a ‘go-getter dating his boss’ daughter.’
I’m just psyched to see Gervais/Merchant coming together again to bring me something funny and, hopefully, honest and true. Cemetery Junction films this summer in the UK.
