Filmmakers gave us the CBGBs, will now take us to Caribou Ranch
Filmmakers Randall Miller and Jody Savin are currently wrapping up production on their punk rock feature film CBGB, which takes a look at the establishment of the Country, Bluegrass, and Blues venue and its evolution into the birthplace of American punk and rock. Although the feature film has yet to have a concrete release date, the filmmaking duo have announced their next project: the story of the iconic Caribou Ranch.
Aptly titled Caribou Records, the film will have Miller and Savin co-writing the script, with Miller set to direct. The movie is being made in alliance with veteran music producer Jim Guerico, who had moved to the Rockies in Colorado to open the legendary Caribou Ranch music studio, which was the home of legendary recordings by artists like Elton John, Carole King, Joe Walsh, Rod Stewart, and Billy Joel. Guercio also worked as the manager and producer for Chicago and produced the early works of The Buckinghams and Blood, Sweat, & Tears.
The film is expected to being shooting this summer in Colorado. In the meantime, hold onto your hats for the release of CBGB, which stars Alan Rickman as Hilly Kristal, Ashley Greene as Lisa Kristal, Johnny Galecki as Terry Ork, and features a host of Hollywood talent playing the greats of the CGBG scene, including Rupert Grint as Cheetah Chrome, Malin Akerman as Debbie Harry, Stana Katic as Genya Ravan, Jared Carter as David Byrne, Joel David Moore as Johnny Ramone, and Kyle Gallner as Lou Reed.
