Foo Fighters has made a secret comedy horror movie titled Studio 666, whose premiere is scheduled for next year.
Deadline first reported the news, revealing that Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee star in this secretly filmed movie. The cast also includes Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega, and Jeff Garlin, with BJ McDonnell as director.
Studio 666 will show us “what happens when the legendary rock band rents a mansion full of lurid rock and roll history to record their 10th album. “. However, after moving in, Leader Grohl discovers that he is creatively blocked and “when evil forces in the house sink into your consciousness, creative juices begin to flow, but so does the blood. “.
Open Road Films has acquired the worldwide rights to the film, which is based on a Grohl story that was made into a script, written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes. It will be released in theaters in the United States on February 25, 2022, with an international premiere to be confirmed at a later date.
“After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries, finally it was time to take it to the next level … A horror comedy feature film. “Grohl said when the project was finally announced. “Like most of Foo’s stuff, Studio 666 It started with a wild idea that grew into something bigger than we ever imagined possible. “.
“We wanted to bring back the classic magic that all our favorite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious gore that fucked … rocks. “added. “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 as our best-kept secret for two years. Get ready to laugh, scream, and shake your head with your popcorn. Study 666 fucked you … “.
The movie was filmed inside the same house where Foo Fighters recorded their 10th studio album, Medicine at Midnight, which was released earlier this year, several months before the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A good time for all this, since their debut album officially hit stores 25 years ago.
