CBGB movie to be released in 2013
A movie about the now-defunct New York City rock club will be released next year, according to Rolling Stone. Production has wrapped on CBGB, which stars Malin Akerman as Blondie's Debbie Harry, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop and Alan Rickman as club owner Hilly Krista.
"It is a story of Hilly and how he basically was the catalyst for this gigantic, sea-changing music. And he didn't set out to do that initially, but he became sort of the godfather of punk and underground rock," director Randall Miller told the magazine.
The film, which cost $10 million to produce, will feature more than 40 songs from the era, however writer Jody Savin says the soundtrack has yet to be finalized because "some bands are more cooperative than others."
