Watch: Music Manager Bill Murray Searches for Talent in Afghanistan in ‘Rock the Kasbah’ Trailer

The second trailer for the Bill Murray-starrer rock n’ roll movie Rock the Kasbah was released this week.

Here’s the official synopsis for the dramedy film from the Rock the Kasbah Facebook page:

Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s version of American Idol. Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the “Afghan Star.”

Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Wag the Dog, The Bay) directs off a script from Mitch Glazer (The Recruit, Passion Play).

The film hits theaters October 23. Check out the extended trailer above.
