LaBeouf, Willis to Rock The Kasbah

Shia LaBeouf and Bruce Willis are among the latest stars to sign up for Rock The Kasbah.

Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Zooey Deschanel have also signed up for Barry Levinson's film, according to The Hollywood Reporter..

They are joining Bill Murray, who is already on board to play a washed up music manager trying to find new talent in Afghanistan.

Bill's character goes to the country on the USO tour with his last remaining client. When he finds himself abandoned, penniless and without his passport, he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice, whom he sneaks back to Kabul to compete on the popular television show, The Afghan Star, Afghanistan's equivalent of American Idol.

Levinson said: "I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect team of comic actors to round out this wickedly funny and heartfelt film."

Shooting is due to start in June.
