Rock the Kasbah

"There's got to be a reason for this…!" Open Road Films has unveiled the trailer for Rock the Kasbah, starring Bill Murray as a music manager who gets lost in Afghanistan, and ends up finding a young Afghani girl to compete in their version of American Idol. This trailer looks and plays a lot like a smart Barry Levinson comedy, because it is a Barry Levinson comedy! In addition to Murray, Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson and Scott Caan show up, too. This actually looks like quite a bit of fun, but not in a slapstick hit-each-other-in-the-nuts way, in a this-guy-is-nuts and he's fun to watch way. Give it a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah, in high def from Apple:

Rock the Kasbah

A down-on-his-luck music manager discovers a teenage girl with an extraordinary voice while on a music tour in Afghanistan and takes her to Kabul to compete on the popular television show, Afghan Star. Besides Bill Murray, the cast includes Zooey Deschanel Bruce Willis, Danny McBride and Scott Caan. Rock the Kasbah is directed by veteran filmmaker Barry Levinson (of The Humbling, The Bay, Man of the Year, Bandits, Sphere, Wag the Dog, Sleepers, Toys, Rain Man, Good Morning Vietnam), from a screenplay by Mitch Glazer (a "longtime friend" of Bill Murray). Open Road Films is planning to release Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah in select theaters starting on October 23rd this year. For more follow @OpenRoadFilms.

    This looks a blast. Still a bit down on Ghostbusters 3 never happening with Murray's position over the years, but will be checking this out.
    Murray looks like he was having a blast filming this. Should be interesting if nothing else.

    Will watch.

    Is it possible that Bruce Willis ended finally up in some watchable movie, huh? He has to be grateful to be cast with Bill fucking Murray ...

      Dude (or ma'am), I think he already played with Murray, before……. anyway, "It's in the hole! It's in the hole…….."
      • shiboleth
        I believe you're right (I just don't remember when and what it was...). But I was referring to this one and B. Willis' lack of good roles lately. And it's dude who likes 'ma'ams') ...
