Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
has given moviemaker Oliver Stone
the all-clear 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."
However 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 the frameworks are. 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.
