BJ McDonnell (Hatchet III, Slayer: The Repentless Kilogy) is directing, based off a story by Grohl, with Jeff Behler and Rebecca Hughes penning the screenplay. Open Road Films has acquired worldwide rights.
“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,” Grohl said in a statement to Deadline.
“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 [expletive] rocks,” he continued. “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 headband in your popcorn. Studio 666 will [expletive] you up.”
