They are definitely cranking this one up to 11.
It’s been announced that the cast of the iconic 80’s music mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap (Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, and Michael McKean) as well as director of the film Rob Reiner, is getting back together again. And moderating the reunion will be Patton Oswalt. They are reuniting to raise money for the Pennsylvania Democrats Benefit. This will mirror a reunion of another Rob Reiner film, The Princess Bride, which raised over $4 million for the Wisconsin Democrats.
The timing is definitely interesting. Earlier this year, Guest, Shearer, McKean, and Reiner finally settled in a lawsuit against Vivendi and its subsidiary StudioCanal regarding ownership rights and all royalties pertaining to This is Spinal Tap. So I’m sure the mood in the reunion will now be all the more livelier, with that being considered.
The reunion is taking place on October 14th. More information can be found here.
