Washington: Shia LaBeouf has reportedly exited from Barry Levinson directed all-star comedy ` Rock the Kasbah .`

`Kasbah` was a story of a has-been rock manager who takes his last remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. In Kabul he discovers a young girl with an extraordinary voice and manages her through Afghanistan`s version of `American Idol,` the wildly popular Afghan Star.

In a supporting role, LaBeouf was supposed to have played part of a military duo; McBride was the other half.

According to the sources, the parting was an amicable one, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

The `Transformers` star came onto the project in February, just two weeks after he said he was retiring from "all public life" because of attacks against his artistic integrity.
