Ricky Gervais has unveiled his next project – a film set before the “sexual revolution”.

The 'Office' star, who has also just finished filming a starring role in the Hollywood supernatural comedy 'Ghost Town', said: “I got back and me and Steve (Merchant) have just had our first meeting yesterday and we’ve decided what to do next which is going to be a film.”

Gervais, 46, told Radio 5 Live: “We’re going to do a film next. It’s about a group of 20-somethings in 1970 in a small town where the sexual revolution didn’t hit and they’re going to get married and live next door to their mum.

“It’s (about) whether they do or whether they escape. We’ll probably film that in 2009 for release in 2010. So, a long time to wait.”

The comedy star’s last episode of Extras is being broadcast this Christmas.

Gervais has also just played a supporting role in 'Night At The Museum', opening on St Stephen's Day.
