Open Road Films released the new trailer for Foo Fighters upcoming horror comedy film Studio 666. The trailer shows the band moving into a mansion in Encino, California to do their 10th album, but the horror starts when the mansion seems to be haunted by supernatural forces that will threaten both the completion of the album and their lives.
After playing Satan in 2006 Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, Dave Grohl appears to be possessed by a demon in this film. Grohl previously said of 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,” and added, “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 ‘n’ roll movies had but with a twist: hilarious gore that fucking rocks.”
The band members, Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee play as themselves added by stars Will Forte, Jeff Garlin, Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman and Jenny Ortega and also features cameos from Lionel Richie and Slayer’s Kerry King.
Studio 666 is directed by BJ McDonnell (Hatchet III) and written by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes, based on a story by Grohl. The film will hit theaters on February 25. Tickets are now available at the film’s official website.
