Came across this news at Zap2It.com and I just had to share a few snippets with you guys!
A Rutles sequel and a Merchant/Ivory spoof? Count me in for one of each!
OK, I just did an IMDb search for Rutles 2: Can't Buy My Lunch, and here's what I got:
No other Pythons seem to make an appearance, although there are several notable names listed as 'interviewees':
David Bowie, Billy Connolly, Carrie Fisher, Tom Hanks, Jewel, Steve Martin, Mike Nichols, Conan O'Brien, Salman Rushdie, Garry Shandling, and Robin Williams.
It's listed as a (TV) title, and Warner Brothers seems to have the U.S. distribution rights. No video release date yet.

He talked about the Rutles sequel on the Rutles dvd, and I've been looking forward to it ever since. Very good news to hear it's finally coming. :)

I have a theory on the Rutles sequel as far as "the Rutles" appearing in it. The way Eric Idle mentioned the sequel on the DVD led me to beleive he was compiling unused footage from the original shooting to use. I read some articles about a nasty falling out between Idle and Neil Innes (who wrote all the songs and played Ron Nasty) over the "Archeology" album, so I'd be willing to bet Innes won't participate with any new material. I haven't heard how Rikki Fataar (Stig) and John Halsey (Barry) stand on the Idle/Innes problems.

I can't wait for "The Remains of the Piano." There hasn't been a really good genre spoof in a long time.
