PERSEPOLIS Team Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud Are WAITING FOR AZRAEL with Mathieu Amalric

Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, the duo who adapted Satrapi 2000’s graphic novel Persepolis, are re-teaming to adapt Satrapi’s 2006 book Chicken with Plums with Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly).  The live-action adaptation, which will be re-titled Waiting for Azrael, is also a true story of life in Iran, this time focusing on her great-uncle Nasser Ali Khan, one of Iran’s most revered musicians.  Ion Cinema also reports that Amalric will be joined by an American A-list actor but wouldn’t say who at this time.
