TEHRAN – Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Mohseninasab plans to hire two Turkish actors for his new production to be shot in Turkey and Cyprus.
Kivanc Tatlitug, who is famous for his portrayal of Kuzey in the Turkish TV series “Kuzey Guney”, and “Lale Devri” star Tolgahan Sayisman are expected to play in the film entitled “Free of Charge”, the director told the Persian service of ILNA on Monday.
Copies of the screenplay have been sent to their agents and preliminary negotiations have been carried out with them, he added.
The film centers on a group of children who seek refuge at Iraq’s borders due to the ongoing battles in Iraq and Syria, but they soon turn into victims of human trafficking in Turkey.
“The story is set in three countries of Turkey, Cyprus, and Belgium, however we plan to complete shooting in Turkey and Cyprus, since it is hard to get a visa for Belgium and the expenses will be high”, Mohseninasab said.
Mohseninasab who is also the producer of the film said that there will be no Iranian actors in the film, and that the film will be screened in Turkey and some Arab countries.
