Trailer For Rock The Kasbah Online
Opportunity rocks for Bill Murray
"It's time for a crazy story..." First announced in 2013, Barry Levinson's Rock The Kasbah is finally complete, and here's a trailer to prove it. Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel, Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Scott Caan and Danny McBride star, and Mitch Glazer (previously linked to Murray by Scroogedand Lost In Translation) wrote the screenplay.
As you'll just have gathered, Murray plays a burned-out music manager who heads to Afghanistan on a USO tour with his one remaining client. Through a series of unfortunate events, he ends up abandoned, cash-strapped and without his passport (all together now - "Murree-ee-ee don't like it...") but then stumbles upon a young girl with an amazing voice who he figures could make it big. So he somehow manages to smuggle her back to Kabul so she can compete in local X-Factor variant The Afghan Star.
Shooting took place last summer (with Caan replacing Shia LaBeouf at short notice), and Rock The Kasbah is out in the US on October 23. We don't have a UK date yet.
