‘Retirement’ lures Gervais

Ricky Gervais is getting ready for “Early Retirement” at Warner Bros. British comic is attached to star in the feature based on Mark Perez’s comedy pitch about an work-obsessed man who quits his demanding job to spend more time with his family. Mosaic Media’s Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are producing, with Perez exec producing. Suckle heard the writer’s pitch, then approached Gervais, creator of the U.K. versions of “The Office” and “Extras,” who became attached to the project, which they sold to Warner. Perez said he wanted to do a movie that picks up where other family comedies leave off — with the husband quitting his job to spend more time with his family — and then watch what happens.
