Navid Negahban Joins “Words and Pictures”

Navid Negahban, best known for playing the terrorist Abu Nazir on Showtime’s “Homeland”, will star opposite Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche in the Fred Schepisi-helmed indie drama “Words and Pictures”.

Negahban will play the headmaster at a New England prep school where a charismatic English teacher (Owen) and a guarded art teacher (Binoche) form an unlikely bond, one later complicated by romance.

Gerald Di Pago wrote the screenplay and shooting begins in mid-March in Vancouver. Curtis Burch will produce.
