Spinal Tap II

A Sequel No One Saw Coming

Rob Reiner’s 1984 mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap, is getting a sequel. Yes, you read that right. In late February, cameras will roll for Spinal Tap II. Reiner spilled the beans on the RHLSTP With Richard Herring podcast.

Star-Studded Surprise

They’re back as Nigel Tufnel, David St. Hubbins, and Derek Smalls. Reiner’s not just directing; he’s Marty DiBergi again, the man behind the camera in the movie.
