Barry Levinson is shaping up to be the man of the moment heading into Toronto with potentially two titles on the market, one of which has been announced as the Murray vehicle from QED, Venture Forth and Shangri-La Entertainment.

Rock The Kasbah is based on an original screenplay by Mitch Glazer about a burnt-out music manager on a disastrous trip to Afghanistan with his last client.

Penniless and abandoned, the manager discovers a talented unknown and gets her on to Afghan Star, the local equivalent of American Idol.

QED’s Bill Block, Venture Forth’s Jacob Pechenik and Shangri-La Entertainment’s Steve Bing will produce.
