Scorsese teams up with Iranian director

Oct. 6, 2012 at 1:40 PM   |   Comments

BUSAN, South Korea, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Kurdish-Iranian filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi said Martin Scorsese will team up as executive producer for his next film, "60 Seconds of Us."

Ghobadi made the announcement at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, where his latest film, "Rhino Season" was screened, The Hollywood Reporter said Saturday.

The two filmmakers are currently working on the script for "60 Seconds of Us," which will be about "the conflict between Iranians and Kurds," Ghobadi said. The film will be shot in southern Turkey because Ghobadi is deemed as persona non grata in Iran for his criticisms of the regime, THR reported.
