Production Underway on ‘THIS IS SPINAL TAP’ Sequel Reuniting England’s Loudest and Most Punctual Band

Get ready to turn up the volume to 11 – Spinal Tap is back! Englands loudest and most punctual rockers are reuniting for one final concert, set to be documented once again by filmmaker Martin “Marty” DiBergi in the highly-anticipated sequel to the 1984 cult classic This Is Spinal Tap; a film deemed “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress in 2002, and selected for preservation by the National Film Registry,

Castle Rock Entertainment has today announced that a sequel to the original classic recently began production in New Orleans, Louisiana, with Rob Reiner directing and Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer all reprising their iconic roles as the legendary heavy metal band.

The film promises cameos from music legends such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, Questlove, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, adding even more star power to this comedy rock epic.

“I recently spoke to Marty DiBergi,” said director Rob Reiner, “who said that he was more than happy to take a sabbatical from his position as a visiting Professor’s Assistant at the Ed Wood School of Cinematic Arts to once again document Spinal Tap to ensure their place in the pantheon of Rock and Roll.”

The film is being produced by Reiner, Michele Reiner and Matthew George and financed under the Castle Rock Entertainment banner.  Christopher H. Warner and Derrick Rossi serve as executive producers. 

With the band back together, fans can expect the amps to be turned up and hilarity to ensue when the sequel hits screens.
