Iranian film editor Hayedeh Safiyari has begun the film’s editing.

Professional Iranian actors Amir Jadidi, Mohsen Tanabandeh, Nader Shahsavari, Fereshteh Sadr-Orafai and Sarina Farhadi star in the film, IRNA wrote.

As expected and scheduled, Farhadi’s ninth production, which officially entered pre-production stage in June, finished after 75 shooting sessions.

A number of cineastes believe that the importance of shooting ‘A Hero’ in Shiraz is due to the fact that Shiraz is one of the symbols of Iranian arts and culture and this increases the global popularity of the work.

It is also said that ‘A Hero’ will be as influential as Farhadi’s Oscar-winning ‘A Separation’.

“We are proud to propose a new brilliant film project by great author Asghar Farhadi,” previously said Alexandre Moreau, sales and marketing  ice president at Memento, which has sold five Farhadi films. “He is a consistent director, and a master of suspense which always draws audiences to theaters. The script is absolutely fascinating and tackles many contemporary issues of our modern societies.”

Producers are Farhadi and regular collaborator Alexandre Mallet-Guy of Memento Films Production.

Farhadi’s previous film, ‘Everybody Knows’ starring Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, was filmed in Spain.

Farhadi’s ‘The Salesman’ and ‘A Separation,’ both in his native language, won him Oscars for best foreign-language film. ‘A Separation’ also received a best screenplay Oscar nomination.
