The first promotional poster has been released for CBGB, an upcoming film which focuses on the founding of the New York punk nightclub that helped launch the careers of such legendary acts as The Ramones, Blondie, Television and The Talking Heads (and many others).
Alan Rickman stars as club founder Hilly Kristal. Other actors signed on include Malin Akerman as Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry, Kyle Gallner as Lou Reed and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop.
Television’s Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine as well as former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne are slated to make cameo appearances, though not as themselves.
The film is scheduled for a theatrical release later this year. You can also see a bigger version of the poster at the film’s Facebook page.
