That was a loooong Retirement
Did you miss Shia LaBeouf? It’s been three long weeks since he announced he was“retiring from all public life,” leaving a gaping hole in Hollywood.
Don’t worry, though: He’s trading in the possibility of a Florida resort home in favor of returning to work on an indie comedy directed by Barry Levinson (“Rain Man,” “Wag the Dog”) and co-starring Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel, Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson and Danny McBride.
“Rock the Kasbah” is set to enter production in June. With a script by Mitch Glazer (1998’s “Great Expectations,” Starz’s “Magic City”), the movie depicts a washed-up rock manager who gets stranded in Kabul after taking his last remaining client on a USO tour in Afghanistan. There, he discovers a gifted young female singer via “Afghan Star,” the country’s massively popular version of “American Idol.”
He is an A$$hole!
