‘The Tale of the Heavens’, by Iranian-Kuwaiti executive producer and director Abbas Yousefi, has halted production for two years and now is looking for international sponsors to resume the film shoot.
According to the latest interview with the director, reaching some agreements with several sponsors, the project has now entered the production stage which is anticipated to be time-consuming.
Yousefi has also said in his interview that the filming location is not yet determined but it will be soon decided on.
‘The Tale of the Heavens’ is about Imam Ali (AS), the first Muslim Imam, from birth to his martyrdom, narrating the most important incidents of his life.
A teaser trailer of the movie has earlier been made at the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Cinema Town where Iranian mega director Majid Majidi made his historical blockbuster 'Muhammad: The Messenger of God'.
