The classic 1984 heavy metal mockumentary cult hit "This Is Spinal Tap" has been digitally remastered for a new video and DVD release on Sept. 5 of this year.
The DVD will feature commentary from the members of Spinal Tap: David St. Hubbins (played by Michael McKean), Derek Smalls (played by Harry Shearer) and Nigel Tufnel (played by Christopher Guest) and a new interview with director Marty DeBergi (played by Rob Reiner), plus new outtakes and over an hour of additional previously unreleased footage.
The film is being digitally remixed and will have a limited theatrical re-release on Sept. 1. Rumour has it that Spinal Tap Action figures will be available in stores soon.
