Rob Reiner is turning it up to 11. Again.
The director is returning for a sequel to cult comedy This Is Spinal Tap with original stars Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer also reprising their roles as the fictional English heavy metal band. In addition to directing, Reiner will reprise his onscreen role as documentarian Martin “Marty” DeBergi.
The sequel to the 1984 rock mockumentary is planned as an early 2024 release, tied to the 40-year anniversary of the original.
“When it was announced that Spinal Tap would reunite for one final concert, Marty DeBergi saw this as a chance to make things right with the band who viewed This is Spinal Tap as a hatchet job. So he left his position as visiting adjunct teacher’s assistant at the Ed Wood School of Cinematic Arts in pursuit of film history,” said Reiner.
The project will also feature the appearances of real-life performers, who will be announced at a later date.
