Stone biopic a big mistake, critics warn Ahmadinejad

There are few obvious parallels between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the religiously devout Iranian president, and Jim Morrison, the famously hedonistic lead singer of the Doors.

But now the fact that the pair are to share a cinematic bond in the form of biopics directed by Oliver Stone is generating stern disapproval in conservative circles in Tehran.

Ahmadinejad accepted the request earlier this year by the director to make a documentary about him. A bad move, according to one of Iran's most influential conservative newspapers, which has tried to convince him to reconsider.
