Scott Caan to replace Shia LaBeouf in Rock the Kasbah

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

It’s nice to wake up in the morning and the first song in your head is The Clash’s Rock the Casbah. However, I’m here to talk about another ROCK THE KASBAH. No, it’s not a biopic on the band, but it does have Bill Murray as the lead player.

At the beginning of the Shia Labeouf debacle, the actor decided to take on one of the roles in the flick. Now it seems that Labeouf will no longer be rocking any kasbahs.

A replacement has already been found in HAWAII FIVE-O’S Scott Caan who is currently in negotiations. Here’s a synopsis:

a has-been rock manager (Murray) 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. Caan will play an ammo-dealing con man, who along with his partner (Danny McBride) hustles Murray in war zone Kabul.

Caan will board a cast that includes Murray, McBride, Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel, and Kate Hudson. Barry Levinson serves as director on the comedy.
