Foo Fighters Unveil Trailer For Upcoming Horror Comedy Film ‘Studio 666’ – Up News Info
Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters are now bona fide cast members with the release of their upcoming horror film titled ‘Studio 666’.
Grohl, guitarists Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, bassist Nate Mendel, keyboardist Rami Jaffee and drummer Taylor Hawkins are all cast as themselves in “Studio 666”.
The story is about the Foo Fighters who, due to deliver their tenth album for their record label, retreat to an Encino, California mansion “steeped in rock and roll’s macabre history” to write and produce the album. There, Grohl “struggles with supernatural forces that threaten both the album’s completion and the band’s life”.
On the trailer, apparently not himself and struggling to write a new song to show the band, Grohl plays the opening strains of an already existing song and introduces it as something new, to which Taylor Hawkins ostensibly corrects him, that it is indeed “‘Everlong’ and you wrote it about 20 years ago. Things get stranger as Grohl, apparently the only one seeing spooky things in the house, starts to becoming possessed and proceeds to eliminate the band members one by one.In one scene, he pushes Chris Shiflett’s face onto a barbecue after the latter criticizes his barbecue skills, and later takes revenge on Hawkins as Grohl decapitates him (apparently) with a cymbal After getting a good drum set, take Taylor off first, of course!
The film is directed by BJ McDonnell, written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes based on a story by Grohl. The cast also includes Whitney Cummings, Jenny Ortega, Will Forte and Leslie Grossman.
“Studio 666” is a play from the band’s own recording location, named Studio 606, where several of the band’s successful Roswell Films music documentaries have been produced in the past.
The film is set to hit theaters in February 2022.
