I don’t know a lot about the next year’s Cemetery Junction, except that it’s written and directed by Ricky Gervais and his “The Office” partner, Stephen Merchant (and that it feels like cemetery should have an “a” in it). That should be enough, actually, to get me in the door. The logline is vague — A 1970s-set comedy centered on three upstart professional men working at an insurance company — but we do know that it stars Gervais, Ralph Feinnes, and Emily Watson. And even though it’s not due out until April 2010, there’s already a teaser trailer for it. Granted, there’s no actual footage from the movie, nor is there anything substantive about the movie in it, but it does have Ricky Gervais and Ralph Feinnes saying amusing things.
Do you really need anymore than that?
