Dave Grohl Gives Details On Foo Fighters’ Film, ‘The Singer Went Nuts And Killed His Whole Band’
Dave Grohl recently gave an interview to Classic Rock to discuss the upcoming Foo Fighters movie. During the conversation, the singer revealed some exciting details about the film as well.
Recently, Foo Fighters announced that they have been working on a comedy horror flick named ‘Studio 666.’ Created by Open Road Films’ Tom Ortenberg and the band’s help, the film is scheduled for February 25, 2022.
In the movie ‘Studio 666,’ Grohl and the Foos deal with supernatural forces inside an Encino mansion, where the band recorded ‘Medicine At Midnight.’ In that studio, a band named Dream Widow, consisting of supernatural beings, threatens the completion of Foo Fighters’ album.
Talking about the fictional band Dream Widow, Dave Grohl told Classic Rock that the band’s singer went nuts and murdered his bandmates due to creative differences. Following that, the singer revealed they filmed most of the movie before the pandemic, and only a few ending scenes were left at that time.
Grohl then said the filmmaking process slowed down due to regulations and restrictions. However, they did things safely and pulled it off. Over lockdown, they finalized a trailer for ‘Studio 666,’ and upon watching the trailer, the band felt inspired to complete the movie.
Commenting on Dream Widow, Dave Grohl told Classic Rock the following:
“The singer went nuts and murdered his whole band over creative differences.”
Talking about the filmmaking process of ‘Studio 666,’ Dave Grohl then continued,
“We had filmed most of the movie. All we had to film was basically the few ending scenes. Then months and months went by. We would have meetings to talk about how we could possibly finish this movie with all the new restrictions and compliance.
‘How are we going to f*cking pull this off?’ So we came up with a plan. And those six days of shooting turned into about three weeks because of all the new regulations that really slow things down. We were one of the first productions in Los Angeles back after the Covid thing. We did it safely, and we actually pulled it off.“
Dave Grohl then recalled the first time he watched the trailer of the film:
“We watched that trailer, and we were like ‘Holy f*cking shit. I mean, honestly, talk about far beyond anyone’s expectations… It’s a ‘movie’ movie. We all were just like, ‘Oh my god, let’s finish this.'”
Grohl then revealed the details about ‘Studio 666’ and excited the fans by saying the following:
“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.”
