CBGB movie (and other films) premiering at CBGB Festival

CBGB Festival 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
CBGB

The film stars Alan Rickman (you know, Hans Gruber from Die Hard) as CB’s owner Hilly Kristal, which is a check in the “could be good” category… but then there’s Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop, Malin Ackerman as Debbie Harry, and, um, Rupert Grint (aka Ron Weasley) as Rocket From the Tombs’ Cheetah Chrome. Donal Logue, Johnny Galecki and Bradley Whitford are also in this thing. If the poster is any indication, it’ll be a wacky comedy?

As discussed, the CBGB Music & Film Festival is returning to various NYC venues from October 9 to 13. Many films will be making their premieres at the fest, and it’s just been announced that the long-time-coming CBGB movie will make its festival premiere during the film portion (the above text is from our last post on it). Other music films making their premieres at the festival include Tony D’Annuncio’s Detroit music scene documentary, Louder Than Love: The Grand Ballroom Story, and Danny Garcia’s Looking for Johnny, the Legend of Johnny Thunders.

Early bird badges were initially only going to be on sale until July 1, but the sales have been extended until August 16.
