Foo Fighters shares ‘Studio 666’ trailer with Lionel Ritchie, Slayer Cameos
Foo Fighters released the first official trailer for their new horror movie STUDIO 666, released on February 25, featuring cameos by Lionel Ritchie and Slayer guitarist Kerry King.
Filmed in the house where the band recorded their 10th album Medicine at midnight, the film is based on a story by Dave Grohl with a screenplay by Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes and is produced by John Ramsay and James A. Rota of Roswell Films and Therapy Studios, both longtime collaborators with the Foo Fighters over years.
The trailer teases the film, showing the group moving into the haunted mansion in Encino, California to record and fight the supernatural forces trying to kill them.
“Be prepared to laugh, scream and headbanger in your popcorn,” frontman Dave Grohl said in a previous statement. “‘Studio 666’ is going to screw you up.”
Directed by BJ McDonnell and produced by Open Road Films, STUDIO 666 stars band members Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee, as well as comedian Whitney Cummings, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega, Leslie Grossman and Jeff Garlin.
“After decades of ridiculous music videos and many musical documentaries under our belt, it was finally time to take a horror comedy feature to the next level,” said Grohl. “Like most Foo things, ‘Studio 666’ started off with a wacky idea that turned into something bigger than we ever imagined possible.”
