Alan Rickman Cast In CBGB Movie?

Hilly Kristal

I forget where I first saw this, but I am hoping it is not true.

Alan Rickman — who has been in all kinds of movies, including the first “Die Hard” and the Harry Potter flicks — has allegedly signed on to play Hilly Kristal, the legendary owner and founder of CBGB.

There is a movie being made about the club, it seems, by Randall Miller and Jody Savin. Miller will direct the picture from a script he and Savin wrote together. They hope to begin shooting in June.

Rickman will play Hilly, who I basically watched deteriorate over the last years of his life during my in-depth coverage of the club’s closure.

It was quite said to witness.

There will be a CBGB-related festival this summer. More on that can be found here.
