"CBGB" : Enter Ashley Greene

Actress Ashley Greene ("Twilight") is in talks to play the female lead in the prepping indie feature "CBGB", about the notorious sex 'n drugs punk club, for director Randall Miller. 

Named after the iconic New York music club CBGB ('Country', 'BlueGrass', 'Blues'), the Bowery location would become famous
as a venue for rising 'punk' acts.

Cast members include Malin Akerman, Rupert Grint, Johnny Galecki, Joel David Moore, Stana Katic, Peter Vack, Kerry Bische, Taylor Hawkins, Mickey Sumner, Steven Schub and Evan Alex.

Greene would play 'Lisa Kristal', daughter of club owner 'Hilly Kristal' (Alan Rickman), who had frequent clashes with her father, but eventually worked for the club as a business manager. 

"CBGB" Screenplay was co-written by director Miller and Jody Savin ("Bottle Shock") and starts shooting towards the end of June 2012, in Savannah, Georgia before relocating to New York.
