Open Road Films picks up “Rock the Kasbah” Bill Murray comedy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Open Road Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the Bill Murray-Shia LaBeouf comedy “Rock the Kasbah”, The Wrap reported.

Murray and LeBeouf are joined by Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Zooey Deschanel in the film, which is written by Mitch Glazer and directed by Barry Levinson.

“Rock the Kasbah” follows Richie Vance, a has-been rock manager who takes his last remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. When Richie 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 version of “American Idol.”

QED’s Bill Block, Venture Forth’s Jacob Pechenik, Shangri-La Entertainment’s Steve Bing and Mitch Glazer will produce. Brian Grazer and Tom Freston are executive producers. Production is to begin in June.
