Ashley Greene To Star In CBGB
Ashley Greene has already gotten involved in numerous non-vampire related projects amidst her involvement in the ever popular and soon-to-be-ending Twilight Saga. This includes a handful of episodes of ABC's short-lived period drama Pan Am, in which she played Amanda Mason for the latter part of the series' brief run. The 60's seemed to suit her nicely as far as the costumes, hair and make-up. This new role will haver her visiting later decades.
Variety is reporting that Greene has nabbed the lead in Randall Miller's upcoming CBGB, a film that tells the story about the New York City music club once known to play host to up-and-coming punk and New Wave bands back in its earlier, more successful years. Playing Lisa Kristal, daughter of CBGB owner Hilly Krystal (played by Alan Rickman), Greene's character is described as "a fiery young woman who frequently clashes with her father," during her younger years. At some point, she ends up working as the business manager of the club and later attends law school in an effort to help keep the place running. The real Lisa Kristal (now known as Lisa Kristal Burgman) is actually a co-producer on the film and controls the estate.
In addition to Rickman, Greene joins previously cast Johnny Galecki, Malin Ackerman and Rupert Grint in the film. This certainly sounds like an interesting part for Greene to tackle, especially following her recurring role as Alice Cullen in the Twilight films, the last of which will arrive in theaters this fall. She also has a couple of other things in the works, including the lead in Todd Lincoln's The Apparition, a horror due out later this summer.
