Scripted by Mitch Glazer (“Magic City”), Rock the Kasbah tells 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.
“We were blown away by the script for ‘Rock the Kasbah,” said Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films, in a statement earlier this year. “We are thrilled to re-team with Bill Block and his team at QED and looking forward to working with legendary filmmaker Barry Levinson and this incredible ensemble cast led by the one and only Bill Murray.”
“With its brilliant script, superb cast and Barry Levinson at the helm, ‘Rock the Kasbah’ promises to be a true comedy event on a global scale,” added Bill Block, CEO of QED International. “Open Road’s proven track record with so many different genres makes them a perfect home for this unique project, and we couldn’t be more excited to continue the relationship with Tom and his team.”
Rock the Kasbah hits the big screen October 23, 2015.
