‘Tap’ trio enlists in ‘Soldiers’

Guest, McKean and Shearer vocalize together again

Fans of the rock parody “This is Spinal Tap” will want to turn the volume up to 11 when DreamWorks’ live action/animation hybrid “Small Soldiers” marches into theaters on July 10.

Word has it that Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer and Michael McKean, who portrayed the hapless heavy metal musicians in Rob Reiner’s much-loved 1983 mockumentary, will give voice to the Gorgonites, a team of monstrous-looking but likable high-tech toys. The creatures do battle with a platoon of war-loving action figures for control of a small suburban community in the Joe Dante-helmed pic.

Tommy Lee Jones barks out orders as Chip Hazard, the tough-talking leader of the macho commando unit.
