Earlier this fall, Grohl’s mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, revealed to the Sydney Morning Herald that a film about Dave’s life was in the works, and thanks to some social media posts, it appears that shooting is now underway. One of the most recent posts comes from an Annandale High School principal who spotted a film crew on his campus and learned that it was Grohl, who attended school there, shooting a piece. Grohl’s mother also was a teacher at the school. While few details have been revealed about the film, Dave’s mother hinted earlier this year that it could involve his siblings as well. She did reveal that the movie focuses on his career “from Scream to Nirvana to Foo Fighters.” “We are doing that,” she added. “Coming soon.”
Grohl has taken an increasing interest in film in recent years, working on the Sound City documentary, then shooting a docuseries for HBO surrounding the creation of the band’s Sonic Highways album.
