Actress Malin Akerman is set to portray rock icon Debbie Harry in a new movie about legendary New York club boss Hilly Kristal.

Alan Rickman was recently cast as Kristal, the founder of the fabled CBGB venue, and now Akerman has been chosen to play the Blondie frontwoman onscreen.

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has also signed up for the project, as guitarist Cheetah Chrome of punk band the Dead Boys, while Avatar actor Joel David Moore and Julian Acosta will play Joey and Johnny Ramone, respectively, and Seinfeld veteran Estelle Harris will star as Kristal's mother, Bertha.

Kristal's daughter Lisa will produce CBGB, which will tell the story of the famous Bowery venue through her late father's eyes.

Production will begin in Savannah, Georgia next month.
