Iranian director Jamal Shourjeh has scheduled to begin shooting for his new series 'Prophet Moses [PBUH]’ next spring as he has recovered from a stroke.
The prominent filmmaker underwent a surgery to remove a blood clot that he suffered in April.
The pre-production stage of 'Prophet Moses [PBUH]’ will resume soon as Shourjeh’s health is improving, the film and television producer Seyyed-Ahmad Mir-Alaee said, adding that the shooting for the series is scheduled to begin in the middle of spring.
Mir-Alaee further said the actor who is supposed to play the role of Prophet Moses [PBUH] has not been named yet.
He also noted that a foreign actor could be cast in the series.
The biopic TV series on Prophet Moses [PBUH] is based on Quranic descriptions and references from 'Tafsir al-Mizan'.
'Tafsir al-Mizan' is an exegesis of the holy Quran. It was written by Allamah Seyyed Mohammad-Hossein Tabatabaee.
Moses [PBUH] is a prophet in Abrahamic religions. He has been mentioned in the Holy Quran.
