Foo Fighters to star in new horror/comedy 'Studio 666'

Foo Fighters will star in an upcoming full feature-length horror/comedy movie, Studio 666. The movie is set to premiere in theatres on 25th February 2022. The movie was directed by BJ McDonnell. Mcdonell has directed Slayer music videos such as Pride in Prejudice, You Against You and Repentless. The story is by Foo frontman Dave Grohl, with a screenplay by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes.

All six members of Foo Fighters - Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee will feature in the film. They will also take on the job as executive producers. Other actors in the movie are Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Leslie Grossman (“American Horror Story”), Will Forte (“MacGruber”) and Jenna Ortega (the upcoming “Wednesday”).

Dave Grohl said in a news release “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. 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 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.”

When Taylor Hawkins Joined Foo Fighters

Well I reckon this new movie could be more funny than scary. In other news Dave Grohl appeared on 95.5 KLOS talking about when Taylor Hawkins join Foo Fighters.

"Oh my god. The first time we met, we were at some radio show backstage. He came up with a beer in his hand. He's like, 'Hey, man, what's up? I'm Taylor, I play with Alanis Morissette. Dude, I love your record, it's so cool!' He was such a spaz. I was like, 'Wow, you're either my twin or my spirit animal, or my best friend!' In the first 10 seconds of meeting him...And, of course, I'd seen him play the drums and I thought he was an amazing drummer.

When it was time to look for a drummer, of wished that he would do it. I didn't imagine he would leave Alanis Morissette because at the time she was the biggest artist in the world. So when I called him and said, 'Hey, I'm looking for a drummer.' He said, 'You know I'm your guy.' And I think it had more to do with our personal relationship than anything musical."

He concludes "And to be honest, it still does. Our musical relationship, the foundation of that is our friendship, and that's why when we jump up on stage and play, we're so connected because we're like best friends, and it's great."
