Bill Murray has one crazy story to tell in the first trailer and poster for Open Road Films' Rock the Kasbah, arriving in theaters October 23. We haven't heard much about this project lately, aside from the photo Zooey Deschanel set out last year when production wrapped. This comedy reunites Bill Murray with Scrooged screenwriter Mitch Glazer.
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.
Kate Hudson, Bruce Willis, Danny McBride and Scott Caan round out the supporting cast of Rock the Kasbah, which could be a sleeper pick in the Oscar race this year. Barry Levinson directs this upcoming comedy that shows how opportunity can rock when you least expect it. Check out the trailer and poster for Rock the Kasbah below. Do you think it deserves any Oscar buzz?
