Bill Murray's Comedy

If Bill Murray is your guru, you will be happy to know that he again plays leading role. Open Road Films has just unveiled the first trailer for their dramedy Rock the Kasbah, starring Murray as a worn-down music manager who gets lost in Afghanistan, and ends up finding “a young girl with an extraordinary voice” to compete in their version of American Idol, The Afghan Star.

Barry Levinson (Diner, Rain Man) directs this rock and roll narrative set in the Middle East and written by Mitch Glazer (Scrooged). Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride, Scott Caan and Bruce Willis co-stars.

Here’s your first look at the trailer and poster for Murray’s upcoming film Rocks the Kasbah, which hits theaters October 23rd.

This looks like a blast, but there are moments when it all feels forced.

Rock the Kasbah is the story of Richie Lanz, a rock manager with a golden ear and a taste for talent, who has seen better times. When he takes his last remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan, she gets cold feet and leaves him penniless and without his passport in Kabul. While trying to find his way home, Richie befriends a band of misfits and discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice. Against all odds, Richie will take his last shot at creating an unlikely superstar.
