Iranian government has asked the Dutch Filmmaker Steven de Jong to make a romantic film about Iran, Dutch news agency ‘Novum’ reported in April 2012.
De Jong has told Novum he has been at Iranian Embassy in The Hague on 18th April to negotiate about this Dutch-Iranian coproduction. He has added the project will start next month. The film will focus on cultural clash through an affair between an Iranian man and a Western woman.
In March 2012 De Jong was summoned to the court in The Netherlands for “plagerism”. Following the court he shot down his film production company.

It is predicted that Persian community in The Netherlands will react to the coopration between the Dutch filmmaker and Iranian government. Currently many Iranian artists live in exile and Iranian government has been quite tough with pro-democracy movements in the country.
