The film, slated for release next year, will see the entire group – Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee – perform alongside Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Jenna Ortega and more. .
According to a press release, the film will follow Foo Fighters as they move into a mansion in Encino, Calif. “Steeped in gruesome rock and roll history” to record a new album. Once they arrive, however, Grohl “finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the album’s completion and the life of the band.”
In a statement, Grohl said, “After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous musical documentaries under our belt, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A horror comedy feature film. Like most Foo things, STUDIO 666 started with a wacky idea that turned into something bigger than we ever imagined possible.
“Shot in the same house where we recorded our last album ‘Medicine at Midnight’ (I told you this place is haunted!), We wanted to recapture the classic magic of all our favorite rock and roll movies, but with a twist : Hilarious gore that fucking ROCKS. And now, with the help of Tom Ortenberg and the team at Open Road Films, we can finally get this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best kept secret for two years Be prepared to laugh, scream and head into your popcorn. STUDIO 666 fuck you up.
Studio 666 will be directed by BJ McDonnell, who described the film as “a perfect combination of everything I love – rock, horror and comedy, all tied together in one very exciting film.
“I’m so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old-fashioned group movie,” he added. “It’s been years since we’ve seen something like the Beatles To help!, The Monkees To manage, Where KISS meets the ghost of the park. Take this fun old school group movie from the 60s / 70s, mix it with horror and STUDIO 666 was born! I am so thrilled that the cinema and music audiences come together and enjoy our film. “
The film is based on a story by Grohl, with a screenplay written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes. It will hit theaters in the United States on February 25, 2022 with an international release date to be confirmed soon.
