Directed by Oscar-winning Barry Levinson, Rock the Kasbah will begin shooting this June. Less then a week ago Open Road Films acquired U.S. distribution rights to this indie comedy.

Shia Labeouf announced he was retiring a couple months ago but it looks as though he will be joining the cast along with Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, and Zooey Deschanel.

Bill Murray is also slated to lead the cast as Richie Vance, a washed-up music producer who follows his only client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. He finds himself all alone, with no money and no passport, in Kabul. But his luck starts to change when he discovers an extremely talented young singer and enters her in Afghan Star, a local version of American Idol.

Be on the look out for this wickedly funny heartfelt film!
