Spinal Tap II, a direct sequel to legendary rock mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, has been announced.The 1984 film, which produced numerous quotable scenes – including exploding drummers, “it’s such a fine line between stupid and clever” and amps that “go up to 11″ – will now see its 40th anniversary marked with more tales of rock cliché and questionable song titles.Reiner will direct the sequel and return as filmmaker Marty DiBergi, while David St.

Hubbins (Michael McKean), Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), and Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) also return to perform as the brash English band.“The plan is to do a sequel that comes out on the 40th anniversary of the original film and I can tell you hardly a day goes by without someone saying, ‘Why don’t you do another one?'” Reiner told Deadline following the announcement.“For so many years, we said, ‘nah.’ It wasn’t until we came up with the right idea how to do this.

You don’t want to just do it, to do it. You want to honour the first one and push it a little further with the story.”Shearer, McKean and Guest have previously toured as Spinal Tap in real life, and Reiner explained that their recent lack of time together inspired the premise for the sequel. “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.
