Comedian Russell Brand is set to feature in his own documentary, entitled 'BRAND The Film'.

The controversial entertainer, who split from his pop star wife Katy Perry in December 2011, has granted a film company access to his work and personal life for the last five years, and that footage is ready to be transformed into a feature-length film.

The documentary, which is currently in post-production, will centre on Brand's ''spiritual and biographical'' journey from comedian to film star .

What's more, the documentary - which is due out next year - will dwell on his burgeoning status as a political activist.

A synopsis for the documentary has been posted on the website

It reads: ''Every day of our lives, from the minute we can be marketed to, the myth that becoming famous will make our lives complete, or consuming a certain something will be the answer, is chucked down our throats. Yet, the reality is that the medium ain't the message. You become famous for what you do, and therefore it's what you do that matters. This crucial element is overlooked entirely by whole generations of drones who worship at the wrong altar.

''Russell Brand is a troubled visionary who embraced the superficial and doped up times in which we live, only to find it was an empty proposition.''
