British comedian Ricky Gervais is lined up for lead role in the remake of 1970s film 10.

THE OFFICE star is set to play character GEORGE WEBBER - originally undertaken by the late comic Dudley Moore, however the role is not yet confirmed and other Hollywood funnymen are also in the frame.

Michael Riley of PECIFICAP ENTERTAINMENT HOLDINGS reveals, "Matthew Perry and Jack Black are also being considered."

Actress BO DEREK - whose role in the original movie made her an instant sex symbol - has also agreed to a cameo role in the remake.
