The film is based around Alan Rickman's character's battle to turn the club - which shut in 2006 - into the legendary venue it became.

CBGB's became a place for a legion of American punk bands to begin their careers with The Ramones, Misfits, The Cramps and Blondie just some of the now legendary names that frequented it.

The film is expected to be released in 2013.
