I had the good fortune to run into Rupert Grint yesterday (Friday) in Ellis Square, as he walked with his assistant back to their hotel.
The scene you’re seeing here appears to be one in which The Dead Boys (Rupert Grint as Cheetah Chrome, Justin Bartha as Stiv Bators, and Bronson Adams as Johnny Blitz) storm out of CBGB into the street. Once they exist the shot, it continues with some sort of animated discussion between Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman) and Merv Ferguson (Donal Logue).
Actor Donal Logue’s diverse career includes myriad films and television shows, including stints on the series “ER”, “Grounded for Life”, “Knights of Prosperity”, “Life”, and “Terriers”.
Best known for her role in The Twilight Saga, Ashley Greene has the female lead in CBGB — she’s playing Lisa Kristal, daughter of club founder Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman).
On a positive note: Savannah is breathtaking. Nothing like being in the south on independence day!

“Alan Rickman is to play Hilly Kristal in a new movie about the legendary New York club boss.
The British star will shoot “CBGB” in Savannah, Georgia this summer with an all-star cast portraying the likes of the Ramones, Blondie, Television, Talking Heads and Patti Smith – who all headlined at Kristal’s fabled Bowery venue, which is now a John Varvatos clothing store.”
