“Aladdin” Star Mena Massoud To Produce The First Farsi Adaptation Of A Stephen King Novel

Variety reports that the Egyptian-Canadian actor & “Aladdin” star Mena Massoud is set to produce a project that involves the first non-English adaptation of a Stephen King book. The short film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Doctor’s Case, dubbed “The Last King,” will be performed entirely in Farsi.

The movie will be set in Iran and will reflect the country’s ongoing turmoil. It will also feature an all-Iranian cast, including Tara Grammy, Maz Jobrani, Sheila Ommi, and Marshall Manesh. With this project, Massoud aims to bridge the gap between Hollywood and the rest of the world.
