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.
