Shia LaBeouf has decided to bail out of Rock the Kasbah, the star-studded Barry Levinson comedy.

Shia LaBeouf Exits 'Rock the Kasbah'

LaBeouf was set to star in Rock the Kasbah alongside Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel, Bill Murray and Kate Hudson. With a screenplay written by Mitch Glazer, Rock the Kasbah follows a past-his-prime music producer who tries to get back in the game with a young girl from Afghanistan. LaBeouf and Danny McBride were to play military personnel.

Reasons for LaBeouf’s exit are unknown, yet it’s been said that he left the project on amicable terms, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

LaBeouf, who announced that he was retiring from “all public life” earlier this year, now has no future acting gigs lined up. However, he’s currently filming David Ayer’s World War II movie Fury with Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Scott Eastwood and Michael Peña.

Since his plagiarism controversy involving Daniel Clowes' graphic novel began last fall, LaBeouf has been doing some performance art – from hiring skywriters to apologize and state he’s not famous anymore to wearing a paper bag over his head at the Nymphomaniac premiere.
