(Gibson) CBGB, the legendary club that gave birth to New York City's punk rock scene, will be the subject of a new film, according to a report on Billboard.com.

The film, tentatively titled CBGB, will chronicle the years 1974-1976, when the club served as the launching pad for The Ramones, Television, Talking Heads, Patti Smith, Blondie and other important acts of the era.

Co-producer Lisa Kristal Burgman, daughter of CBGB's late founder Hilly Kristal, said: "It was an old-fashioned salon in an awful part of New York where people could fail while they worked to find their voice. [Hilly Kristal] provided a voice to the disenfranchised. It's a heroic and flawed story." more on this story
