Do you remember that time of the sixties and seventies when the favorite bands of the moment released their own fiction film? The Beatles did it with Help! (1965), The Monkees has Head (1968) and KISS had a tape called Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978). Well it seems that all good things come back and this time it will be thanks to the band Foo Fighters, which has just revealed that they secretly filmed a horror movie that will hit theaters very soon.
Although the band already has a handful of documentaries and audiovisuals to its credit, this will be the first time they fully enter the field of fiction. STUDIO 666 It is the title of a kind of horror comedy that promises to have many doses of gore and of course the best music of the group. The tape was secretly recorded during the pandemic, along with his most recent studio album.
In fact the plot of the STUDIO 666 It derives from that experience that meant recording said album. Foo Fighters locked himself up for some time in an Encino mansion and the plot will tell a twisted story about it. According to the synopsis shared by Deadline, this film tells the story of how the band locked up the aforementioned mansion to record an album. However, the lead singer of the band Dave Grohl goes through a creative blockage and when evil presences sink into his consciousness, not only musical inspiration will run through the corridors of the house, but also the blood.
“After decades of various ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, the time has finally come to take it to the next level… A full-length horror comedy film,” said Grohl. “Like most of Foo’s stuff, ‘Studio 666’ started out as a far-fetched idea that grew into something bigger than we ever imagined possible. Filmed in the same house where we recorded our latest album ‘Medicine at Midnight’, I told you that place was haunted! – we wanted to bring back the classic magic that all of our favorite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious and excessive gore«.
STUDIO 666 It was born from an original idea by Grohl himself, but it was later screenwriters Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes who shaped all of the singer’s sketches in the form of a film libretto. The film was directed by BJ McDonnel who has to his credit a couple of horror and suspense films, but above all he has collaborated as a camera operator in several James Wan productions, including Evil one.
Produced by John Ramsay and James A. Rota, as well as a bunch of executive producers that includes John Silva, Kristen Welsh, John Cutcliffe, Gaby Skolnek, Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins, among others.
“Over the past decade we have been fortunate to collaborate with Foo Fighters on a variety of great projects,” said producers Ramsay and Roto. “Whether they are documentaries, television series or music videos, they always bring their great talent and legendary sense of humor. STUDIO 666 takes this to a whole new level and we couldn’t be more proud of this movie. We can’t wait to share it with the world. “
Open Road will distribute the horror film Foo Fighters, starting next February 25. In addition to the band members, the cast includes Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega, and Jeff Garlin. There is still no release date for Mexico.
