CBGB movie to hit cinemas on the anniversary of final gig
The much-anticipated Cbgb movie will be released in October (13), around the seventh anniversary of the fabled club's final show.
Executives at XLrator Media have acquired all U.S. distribution rights to the film, starring Alan Rickman, Ashley Greene, Malin Akerman and Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, and they plan to debut it in New York as part of the annual CBGB Music Festival.
The movie also features Sting's daughter Mickey Sumner as Patti Smith, who performed the final show at the late Hilly Kristal's club on 15 October, 2006.
The film, directed by Randall Miller, was shot in Georgia last summer (12).
