Sean Stone looking to make movies in Iran

  • 23/02/2012

Director Oliver Stone's son is in talks with Iranian officials in a bid to boost the country's movie industry following his conversion to Islam.

Sean Stone, who has appeared in several of his father's films, underwent a conversion ceremony to become a Muslim earlier this month.

He feared members of Hollywood would be reluctant to work with him because of his new-found faith, but Sean has been busy working on projects in Iran and is preparing to discuss his ideas with the country's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

He tells Fox411, "I was invited to meet with the Supreme Leader and the President. I am supposed to meet with the Supreme Leader next time I go. The idea is to get financing for projects we want to shoot there."
