As reported by Variety, production has began on the highly anticipated sequel to the legendary mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap” in New Orleans, Louisiana. Once again helmed by Rob Reiner, who not only directs but also contributes to the script, the film sees the return of its original stars and writers: Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer, reprising their iconic roles as Nigel Tufnel, David St Hubbins, and Derek Smalls, respectively. Additionally, Reiner steps back into the role of the documentarian, Martin “Marty” DiBergi, adding to the excitement surrounding the project.

According to the city’s film office, “Spinal Tap II” has commenced filming in New Orleans from March 6 to April 12. The production is operating under the working title “Goodbye, Cleveland,” a nod to a memorable scene from the original 1984 film where the hapless band members find themselves lost backstage during a concert.

“I recently spoke to Marty DiBergi who said that he was more than happy to take a sabbatical from his position as a visiting Professor’s Assistant at the Ed Wood School of Cinematic Arts to once again document SPINAL TAP to ensure their place in the pantheon of Rock and Roll,” Reiner said in a statement.

The film will feature cameos from Elton John, Paul McCartney, Garth Brooks, Questlove and Trisha Yearwood.
