FOO FIGHTERS to Star in Comedy Horror Movie Studio 666

Barely inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Foo Fighters have little else to accomplish…apart from releasing a feature film titled Workshop 666.

The concept was created by Dave Grohl and written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes. You basically got the plot:

“At Studio 666, legendary rock band Foo Fighters move into an Encino mansion steeped in rock and roll’s macabre history to record their long-awaited 10th album. Once inside the house, Dave Grohl finds himself struggling with supernatural forces that threaten both the album’s completion and the band’s life.

Grohl comments on the film “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 feature-length horror comedy.

“Like most things Foo, Studio 666 started with a wacky idea that turned into something bigger than we ever imagined possible. Filmed in the same house where we recorded our last album ‘Medicine at Midnight” (I told you this place was haunted!), we wanted to recapture the classic magic of all our favorite rock and roll movies, but with a twist: hilarious gore those fucking ROCKS. And now, with the help from Tom Ortenberg and the crew at Open Road Films, we can finally pull this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best kept secret for two years. Be ready to laugh, scream and headbang into your popcorn. Studio 666 is going to fuck you up.

McDonnell is quoted as saying “Studio 666 is a perfect combination of all the things I love. Rock, horror and comedy all come together in one very exciting movie. I’m 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 this band movie from old school 60s/70s, mix it with horror and Studio 666 was born!I’m so thrilled that film and music audiences are coming together and enjoying our film.

The film has a February 25 release date, but no trailer yet. We’ll let you know when one is released. For now, you can visit the Workshop 666 website.
