Indie comedy continues to fill out cast…
Variety is reporting that Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, Shia LaBeouf and Zooey Deschanel are set to join Bill Murray on the cast of the indie comedy ‘Rock the Kasbah.’
The next directorial effort from Barry Levinson (‘The Bay,’ ‘Wag The Dog,’ ‘Rain Man’), the plot centres on “a has-been rock manager who takes his last remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. When he finds himself in Kabul, abandoned, penniless and without his passport,” he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice and manages her through Afghanistan’s equivalent of ‘American Idol.’
“I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect team of comic actors to round out this wickedly funny and heartfelt film,” Levinson said in a statement.
Production will start in June with Levinson directing from a script by Mitch Glazer.
