TEHRAN -- Sean Stone, the son of U.S. filmmaker Oliver Stone, has converted to Islam in Iran.
He went to the office of Shia cleric Ayatollah Mohammad Nasseri Dowlatabadi in the city of Isfahan on Tuesday and recited shahada, the Persian service of the Fars News Agency reported.
Stone came to Iran in early February to attend the 30th Fajr International Film Festival, which ended on Sunday.
In September 2011, he visited some officials at Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance in Tehran to do the groundwork for a documentary.
Stone said he had become a Shia Muslim and had chosen the name Ali.
