So much for retirement and the frequent screams of "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE." THR reports Shia LaBeouf is among the star-studded cast rounding out Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah, which set Bill Murray to star last September.

Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Zooey Deschanel are the other (all white) stars joining the film which takes place mostly in Afghanistan. Murray plays a burned-out music manager who embarks with his only client upon a USO tour and promptly gets lost and stranded sans money and passport in Kabul.

There, in addition to apparently running into lots of fellow Americans, he discovers a young Afghan girl with an amazing voice and coaches her through an audition for their version of American Idol, called The Afghan Star.

Rock the Kasbah starts filming in June.
