No, that was not a typo. Yes, the rock band is releasing a comedy movie. And if all goes as planned, the funny content will also have viewers jumping in their seats. Here's everything you need to know about the Foo Fighters' upcoming horror-comedy film, STUDIO 666.
The movie, kept under wraps for the last two years, stars the famous Foo Fighters members as they record a new album in a haunted Encino estate. But things take a creepy turn when lead singer Dave Grohl is taken over by evil forces that get his creativity - and blood - going.
"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," Dave announced. "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***ing rocks," Grohl explained. "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*** you up."
And while the upcoming project will be like nothing we've ever seen before, it certainly takes inspiration from past films by iconic music groups. "I am so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old-school band movie," film director BJ McDonnell shared. "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!"
Horror, comedy, and rock and roll: sounds like a recipe for success. You can catch STUDIO 666 come February 25, when it will be released in over 2,000 theaters worldwide.
