The Foo Fighters have released a new trailer for their upcoming horror comedy, “Studio 666.” The “Evil-Dead” style film is set for a theatrical release in more than 2,000 theaters on Feb. 25. The film also includes a star-studded cast featuring Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega and Jeff Garlin. “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,” said Grohl. “Like most things Foo, ‘Studio 666’ began with a far-fetched idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible.”
The movie was filmed at the same house where the Foo Fighters recorded their latest album, “Medicine at Midnight.” “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*cking ROCKS,” Grohl said. “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*ck you up.”
The film follows the band as they move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock ’n’ roll history to record a new album. Once in the house, Grohl finds himself battling supernatural forces.
Director B.J. McDonnell said “‘Studio 666’ is a perfect combination of all things I love. Rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture. 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.”
