Hayek to Star in the Political Thriller “The Septembers of Shiraz”

Wayne Blair, who last helmed The Sapphires, will direct the drama, which is quietly being sold at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Gerard Butler is producing the film with Alan Siegel and Heidi Jo Markel.

The Septembers of Shiraz is based on actual events (Sofer was 10 years old when her own family escaped Iran) and tells the story of a Jewish family caught in the Islamic revolution in 1981 Iran.

The story centers on an imprisoned gem dealer, his despairing wife, their daughter — whose playmate’s father is in the charge of the prison — and their New York-based son as they try to come together and escape the deadly tyranny.

Hayek will play the mother while Aghdashloo is the family’s housekeeper, whose son used to work for the gem dealer but is not part of the Revolutionary Guard.

Producers are eyeing a production start in April 2014.

Hayek will next be seen in Muppets Most Wanted. She last co-starred in Grown-Ups 2.
