First CGBG Movie Shots Revealed [Pictures]

The first pictures of the potentially dodgy looking CBGB movie have been revealed, showing the film's stars filming in the specially built CBGBs nightclub set up. Obviously the most notable star here is Malin Akerman who is shown as Blondie's Debbie Harry for the first time - she's seen here in the below photo with Taylor Hawkins, who plays proto-punk pioneer and general gadabout Iggy Pop.

Hawkins of course is a member of a band in real life - the Foo Fighters. The Ramones are another band set to appear in the film, with Joel David Moore, Steven Schub and Julian Acosta set to portray Joey, DeeDee and Johnny Ramone respectively. Twilight star Ashley Greene is also onboard to play Lisa Kristal, daughter of the CBGB owner Hilly Kristal. You can see what she's looking like in the gallery link at the bottom of the article.

The film is set to launch later in the year and is set to document a creatively virile time that took place in New York and particularly Manhattan in the 1970's. A nightclub that actually survived until 2005, it was in the 70's that CGBG's proved a hotbed for breakthrough, genre-defining bands like Blondie, Talking Heads, Television and The Ramones, among many, many others - the place became the hangout for any self-respecting alternative rock musician and its legacy has lasted long after its doors shut.
