Foo Fighters to star in new horror-comedy film Studio 666

The Foo Fighters will star in a new horror-comedy film, “Studio 666.”

Due in US theaters on February 25, 2022 and directed by BJ McDonnell (“Hatchet III”), the project sees the band move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much-anticipated 10th album. Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.

"After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A full-length feature horror comedy film," says Grohl. "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 favorite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious gore that f**king 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 f**k you up."

The film, which will include appearances from the likes of Jeff Garlin, Will Forte and Whitney Cummings, is a throwback to vintage rock pictures of the past, according to its director.

"'Studio 666' is a perfect combination of all things I love: rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture,” explains McDonnell. “I am so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old school 'band' movie. It's been years since we've seen something like The Beatles 'Help!', The Monkees 'Head', or 'KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park'. Take that '60s / '70s old-school band film fun, mix it with horror and 'Studio 666' is born! I am so ecstatic for audiences of film and music to come together and enjoy our film."

The Foo Fighters were recently inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as they continue their 2021 US tour in support of “Medicine At Midnight.” See also:
