Probably not a huge surprise considering he's been directing Foo Fighters videos for years (including the brand new one for 'The Sky Is A Neighborhood' starring his daughters), but Dave Grohl was all set to direct a full on MOVIE. Which is awesome and exciting, except as he got deeper in the process he realized he just didn't have the time for it right now.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone (as reported by NME) work on the film started last year. Grohl said: “I was a little hesitant at first and then I got into it,” he said. “I started working on production and getting into casting with these big names. And at first, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it. And once my heart clicked, I just dive headfirst into whatever it is. And I really got into the script and visualizing this story, but I didn’t have time to do it....The Foo Fighters always get in the way."
THat's not a negative, for us, or for him. Sounds like he's in a great place with the band, saying: "But I like my day job. I really enjoy my day job."
When (if) Foo Fighters madness ever slows, it sounds like he absolutely plans to direct movies, saying "Someday, I'm going to wind up doing it."
And someday, I look forward to seeing it!
