Home Industry News ‘Spinal Tap’ owners attempt to get creators’ $400M suit tossed
The foursome behind the “Spinal Tap” mockumentary — Harry Shearer, Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Rob Reiner — should have the volume of their $400 million suit against Vivendi turned down to zero, the company said on Wednesday.
Vivendi’s StudioCanal unit, which owns the movie, asked a judge to toss the suit.
The four filed suit last year claiming they were stiffed out of millions of dollars in music sales and merchandising income related to the 1984 movie.
So far, they have pocketed only $189 for music sales and merchandising income related to the 1984 movie, they said in the suit.
