Foo Fighters are set to star in a new film called Studio 666.
The long-in-the-works horror-comedy is set to arrive on February 25th, 2022. Studio 666 will follow the Foos as they move to an Encino to record their latest album. When they arrive, Dave Grohl and co. encounter some supernatural forces. Open Road Films acquired the BJ McDonnell-directed flick. It’ll star 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,” Grohl explains.

“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 favourite 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.”
The new movie is based on a story from Grohl and a screenplay from Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes. Roswell Films’ and Therapy Studios’ John Ramsay and James A. Rota produced the movie.
“Studio 666 is a perfect combination of all things I love. Rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture,” director McDonnell adds. “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 somthing like the Beatles Help!, The Monkees Head or KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park. Take that 60’s / 70’s 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.”
