Dallas Buyers Club Writer Boards Shah of Iran Drama

Monday 14th September 2015

Gateway Films is backing the picture and is currently lining up a director. In Wallack, the studio gets an Oscar-nominated writer, whose credits include 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'Mirror Mirror.' She is currently working with 'Dallas Buyers Club' director Jean-Marc Vallee on 'Janis Joplin: Get it While You Can' and is writing 'Dancing With Myself' for Warner Bros.

The film looks at the Shah’s often fraught relationship with the United States, and documents the mistakes that set the stage for the Iranian revolution and the rise of religious leader Ruhollah Khomeini.
