Foo Fighters Are Starring in Their Own Horror-Comedy 'Studio 666'
The film follows a world-famous rock band as they record their 10th record in a haunted mansion
Published Nov 08, 2021Foo Fighters have officially announced Studio 666, a new horror-comedy film that Dave Grohl and co. shot in the supposedly haunted mansion where they recorded their latest record, the dancey Medicine to Midnight. It's arriving in theatres on February 25.
The BJ McDonnell-directed movie follows a rock band as they record their 10th album in a haunted house — art imitates life, etc. etc. — and fight the ghosts and ghouls within. It was written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes, and based on a story written by Grohl.
The band — Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee — all play themselves, while Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega and Jeff Garlin will appear in as-yet-unknown roles. See the film poster below.
In a statement about the film, Grohl said:
Like most things Foo, STUDIO 666 began with a far-fetched idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible. Filmed at the same house where we recorded our latest album Medicine at Midnight — told you that place was haunted! — we wanted to recapture the classic magic that all of our favourite rock and roll movies had, 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 let this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best-kept secret for two years. Be ready to laugh, scream and headbang in your popcorn. STUDIO 666 will fuck you up.
Foo Fighters have been busy this year, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, appearing in a handful of documentaries, releasing their 10th record, plus a Bee Gees tribute album and a bunch of live shows.
