Spinal Tap Star Sues For $125M

ezgif-9288947111

This Is Spinal Tap” star and co-creator Harry Shearer says he’s been getting the short end of the stick for the legendary movie … to the tune of $125 million.

Shearer’s production company just filed suit against Vivendi — which owns Universal Studios — and handles accounting on all merchandise and music related to the 1984 mockumentary. According to docs, Vivendi claims the movie’s 4 creators — Shearer, Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Rob Reiner — were only owed a whopping $81 for merch, and $98 for music sales … up until 2006.

Think about it … that’s $179, split 4 ways! The numbers are astoundingly low, if the lawsuit is correct. Shearer — who also does a ton of voices on “The Simpsons” — has a two-part solution.

First, he wants Vivendi to fork over $125 mil. Then, he wants his own company, Century of Progress Productions, to take over the film’s trademarks.

Doesn’t sound like they’re gonna do Stonehenge tomorrow.
