The legendary 1984 comedy film “This Is Spinal Tap” is getting a sequel. The news was first reported by Deadline.
Rob Reiner will return to the director’s chair, with original stars Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer reprising the roles of Nigel Tufnel, David St Hubbins and Derek Smalls.
Reiner told Deadline that the plan is to have the film released in March 2024.
The plot of the movie is as follows:
“They’ve played Albert Hall, played Wembley Stadium, all over the country and in Europe,” Reiner said. “They haven’t spent any time together recently, and that became the premise. The idea was that Ian Faith, who was their manager, he passed away. In reality, Tony Hendra passed away. Ian’s widow inherited a contract that said Spinal Tap owed them one more concert. She was basically going to sue them if they didn’t. All these years and a lot of bad blood we’ll get into and they’re thrown back together and forced to deal with each other and play this concert.”
