Barry Levinson's next film Rock The Kasbah has snagged some big names to star alongside the already cast Bill Murray.

Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Shia LaBeouf, Zooey Deschanel and Danny McBride are on board for the comedy, reports Deadline.

Rock The Kasbah, which was written by Mitch Glazer, is being hawked at the upcoming European Film Market through QED. QED's Bill Block is signed on to produce, alongside Jacob Pechenik of Venture Forth, Shangri-La Entertainment's Steve Bing and Glazer. The executive producers are Tom Freston and Brian Grazer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is set to begin production in June.

Levinson spoke of the cast, saying, "I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect team of comic actors to round out this wickedly funny and heartfelt film."

The comedy follows an over-the-hill rock manager, Richie Vance, who is doing an Afghanistan USO tour with his last client. While there, he ends up getting ditched, unable to get home and without money. He stumbles upon a talented young girl and he enters her into the Afghan Star, which is the equivalent of American Idol.
