Open Road Films has acquired domestic distribution rights to the Barry Levinson pic "Rock the Kasbah" starring Bill Murray.
Pic also stars Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, Shia LaBeouf and Zooey Deschanel.
Story follows a has-been rock manager who takes his last remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. When he finds himself in Kabul, abandoned, penniless and without his passport, he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice and manages her through Afghanistan's version of "American Idol", the wildly popular "Afghan Star."
QED is representing the film at the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival.
