“This Is Spinal Tap” Sequel in the Works With Original Cast and Director

Nope, that’s not an armadillo in my trouser. It’s been confirmed that a sequel to the 1984 rock mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap is in the works and I’m just really excited about that.

Spinal Tap II has been set in motion with Rob Reiner, who made his directorial debut with the beloved parody band film and will be back to direct the sequel along with also returning as filmmaker Marty DiBergi.

Also ready to make their saucy return are David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), and Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), the nucleus of England’s loudest heavy metal band.

According to the report, Reiner deployed the premise of the film as, “the band was upset with the first film. They thought I did a hatchet job and this is a chance to redeem myself. I am such a big fan and I felt bad they didn’t like what they saw in the first film. When I heard they might get back together, I was a visiting adjunct teacher’s helper at the Ed Wood School of Cinematic Arts. I drop everything to document this final concert.”

The plan is to release the film on March 19, 2024, to coincide with the original movie’s 40th anniversary.

The original Jamie Lee Curtis starred ‘whodunit’ slasher revenge fest on a train on New Year’s Eve filled with a bunch of college students has become a beloved horror classic over the years and the 2022 revival is parallral in context; except it is set on Halloween rather than New Year’s Eve.

In the 2022 modern retelling, the official description is as follows: “Alana (Robyn Alomar) and a group of college seniors board a party train for a Halloween-themed bash, but their fun spirals into fear as attendees are killed off one by one by an unknown killer. Concealed by costumes and plagued with chaos, everyone is a suspect. As the party train continues full steam ahead, Alana must race against the rails to find the killer before she becomes the next victim.” 

The cast is steered by Canadian actress Robyn Alomar (“Utopia Falls”), and Tim Rozon (“Schitt’s Creek”). The movie is written by Ian Carpenter along with Aaron Martin (“Slasher”) and is directed by Philippe Gagnon (“Amber Alert”).
