Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has given moviemaker Oliver Stone permission to make a biopic about him.
Reports suggested Ahmadinejad was unhappy with the idea of the Platoon director turning his life into a film after his country’s film officials called Stone “part of the Great Satan.”
But on Tuesday, the Iranian leader explained he had no objection in principle if the Oscar-winner wanted to make a film about him.
Ahmadinejad told a news conference, “I have no objection, generally speaking, but they have to let me know what are the frameworks. They should talk to my colleagues.”
Ahmadinejad, the son of a blacksmith, became Iran’s President in 2005 after serving in the country’s Revolutionary Guards and then serving as the mayor of Tehran.
