‘CBGB’ Movie to Be Released in 2013
Rolling Stone just announced the famous CBGB Club that was a staple point in New York and the music scene for years (and, of course, is no more) will be having a film made on the iconic venue.This club was the place to be for underground and mainstream rockers to play in the Lower East Side in New York for years until it closed in 2006. It is one of the most iconic clubs of all-time and will be put in movie form by Unclaimed Freight Productions directed by Randall Miller.
Actors in ‘CBGB’ include Malin Akerman, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Alan Rickman.
The film will use, as The Rolling Stone says, “Smithsonian-quality pieces” like its bar, the phone booth, chunks of the walls and those stained toilets, all pulled from storage. I personally have only been there once in my life years ago and it was just something to be apart of — all the history that was laid into the walls with bands like The Talking Heads, the Ramones and so many others.
Shooting just finished for the film, which will be released some time in 2013.
The best thing I personally think that will be great about it will be the director’s authenticity factor of the film.
