The Foo Fighters have released the first official trailer for its upcoming horror-comedy film, Studio 666 which will star the band members in the upcoming movie when it releases next month.
The Foo Fighters film was picked up by Canadian distributor, MK2 MILE END from Open Road Films. Studio 666 is set to be released in select US theatres on February 25th which Open Road Films will handle US Distribution and will be distributed by MK2 MILE END here in Canada.
Studio 666 will see the Foo Fighters band members – Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee record their 10th album. It’s a big deal for them, so the band decides to ‘break the mould’ with its highly anticipated album and get their music juices flowing by recording it inside a supernatural mansion. The Foo Fighters find themselves moving to the Encino mansion which is steeped in gory rock and roll history which is apparently perfect for the band.
“The sound of this house is the sound of album 10,” Dave Grohl says in the trailer after falling in love with the acoustic of the mansion.
After finding themselves situated in the house, it comes apparent early on that moving into the mansion leads to hijinks and violence threatening that band member’s lives. Grohl even finds himself being possessed by supernatural forces after it finds him in his dreams or nightmares really.
“This is not just a creepy rock and roll house, it allows spiritual entities to cross into our world,” Whitney Cummings says in the trailer as a cameo appearance.
The plot of Studio 666 is based on a story by Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl, which was adapted into a screenplay by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes. The film is being directed BJ McDonnell and will also feature stars like Will Forte, Jenna Ortega, Leslie Grossman and Jeff Garlin.
Studio 666 is produced by John Ramsay and James A. Rota, and executive produced by John Cutcliffe, Grohl, Wes Hagan, Hawkins, Jaffee, James Masciello, Nate Mendel, Tom Ortenberg, Shiflett, Matthew Sidari, John Silva, Gaby Skolnek, Smear, Kristen Welsh and Mitchell Zhang.
