That’s right! The 1984 classic This Is Spinal Tap is getting a sequel, and not only is Rob Reiner back as the original mockumentarian, Marty DiBergi, but all 3 original members of the band are back too. According to Deadline, Rob Reiner will return to direct, and original stars/writers Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer return as Nigel Tufnel, David St Hubbins and Derek Smalls, respectively. The sequel currently dubbed Spinal Tap II will see a 2024 release to coincide with the movie’s 40th anniversary.
Personally I’d like to see the title really punch it up with something like Spinal Tap II: The Re-Tappening, or Spinal Tap II: Stonehenge’s Revenge, or something along those lines.
