Foo Fighters are set to star in BJ McDonnell’s upcoming horror comedy flick, Studio 666.

The film will follow the band — comprised of Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee — as they record Medicine at Midnight in a mansion in the San Fernando Valley that’s “steeped in grisly rock and roll history.” The six-piece will be then forced to face “supernatural forces” that terrorize both them and the creation of the album.

Joining the six-piece on screen are Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega and Jeff Garlin. The screenplay was written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes from a story by Grohl, while the whole band will also serve as executive producers.

In a press release, Grohl shared:

“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. 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*cking 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 f*ck you up.”

Meanwhile, McDonnell called the film “a perfect combinational of all things I love”:

“Rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture. 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 something 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.”

Open Road Films’ founding CEO Tom Ortenberg added, “The Foos bring their comedic chemistry and the musical talent we all love to the big screen in this hysterical horror film.”

Meanwhile, Roy Mayorga of Stone Sour and Ministry confirmed that he created the movie score while the film’s theme song was created by none other than John Carpenter of Halloween.

Studio 666 premieres February 25, 2022 in the US.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Squid Game will be returning for a second season.
