Rock band the Heavenly States has sold its life rights to Tiny Dancer Films. According to Variety, the company plans on turning those rights into a film entitled Rock the Casbah.

The story revolves around the band's plans to tour Libya in 2005. This was something no Western band had ever done before. Adam Penn and Jawal Nga are writing the script.

Nga stated, "Having grown up in Libya, I have the ability to appreciate the great humor in this real situation of almost impossible culture clash." The film does not have a start date.
