Kristen Stewart's 'Camp X-Ray' Casts Leading Man (Exclusive)
thewrap Peyman Moaadi, who starred in the Oscar-winning foreign film "A Separation," is set to star opposite Kristen Stewart in writer-director Peter Sattler's politically-charged indie drama "Camp X-Ray," TheWrap has learned.
Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin are producing, which David Gordon Green is executive producing with Lindsay Williams and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. Production will begin later this summer in Los Angeles.
Moaadi is an accomplished screenwriter who has penned several famous Iranian films and recently made his directorial debut with the award-winning drama "The Snow on the Pines." He started his acting career in Asghar Farhadi's 2009 film "About Elly" before reuniting with the director on "A Separation."
Moaadi will soon be seen alongside Morgan Freeman in "The Last Knights" and he also worked with James Gandolfini on the HBO pilot "Criminal Justice," which is now in limbo following Gandolfini's death. He's repped by Shelley Browning of Magnolia Entertainment.
