Persepolis Transitions to Film

Marjane Satrapi’s brilliant graphic novel has quickly developed into an animated film.  The current release is in French, but Sony Classics has optioned it for an American release.  The preview (see below) looks tremendous! Now, if only someone could be daring enough to adapt Maus!

  1. I hate to be a naysayer, but no way is a Hollywood studio releasing this to theatres. B&W + 2D = no go. It’ll probably get a limited “art house” release though, then hit DVD pretty quickly.

    I’m not familiar with the comic, but it looks like Emily Strange the Movie.
