Patrick Stewart, who many of you might know as Captain Picard or Professor X, has signed on to play a villain character in an upcoming film based on the eternal Punks vs. Skins conflict. The film is currently in production and will be called Green Room. It's being directed by Jeremy Saulnier.
Producers have stated that the film follows “a young punk rock band who, after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, find themselves trapped in a secluded venue, fighting for their lives against a gang of skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses.”
The release date is currently to be determined. Presumably, Stewart will be a "skin."
