Miramax and Participant to Co-Produce film adaptation of Azar Nafisi's Best Seller
payvand / Darius KAdivar

Azar Nafisi's book Reading Lolita in Tehran is about to become a Motion Picture directed  by Oscar Nominee director Deepa Mehta based on a screenplay co-written jointly by the Iranian author Nafisi, and, Canadian Indian director Mehta. The film co produced by ebay™ Co-Founder and entrepreneur turned film producer, Jeff Skoll, will certainly be a highly expected motion picture which will certainly break stereotypes and misconceptions about Iran and Iranians in the lines of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis or Stephan Caghan's Syriana.
