The movie CBGB seems to be moving ahead after shooting in Savannah and New York last summer. According to its IMDB page, the film is still slated for 2013 release.
Now the filmmakers are moving forward with another movie about the music industry. From The Hollywood Reporter’s “CBGB” Filmmakers to Tell Story of Famed Caribou Records (Exclusive):
After wrapping their rock feature CBGB, Randall Miller and Jody Savin are hoping to keep the music going with a new music-themed project, this one on famed recording studio Caribou Records.
Miller and Savin will write the script with Miller directing the project. It will produce via their Unclaimed Freight banner along with Brad Rosenberger, their music business partner.
Titled Caribou Records, the movie will aim to tell the story of the music studio run by James William Guercio in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.
Elton John’s album Caribou was named for the studio. Other artists who recorded there included Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, John Lennon, Joe Walsh, Chicago, and The Beach Boys.
There were hopes that Unclaimed Freight’s next project would be The Drummer, a story about The Beach Boys’ drummer Dennis Wilson that seemed likely to film in Savannah.
