Son of Renowned US Director, Sean Stone, Converts to Islam

TEHRAN (FNA)- Son of Oliver Stone, the renowned Oscar-winning US director, converted to Islam in a ceremony in the Central Iranian city of Isfahan on February 14.

Sean Stone became a Shiite Muslim and chose the Muslim name of Ali as announced at the ceremony held in the Iranian historical city of Isfahan. 

"The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with," Stone said. 

"It means I have accepted Mohammad (PBUH) and other prophets," he added. 

Born to a Jewish father and Christian mother, Stone did not say why he converted to Islam. 

Stone who visited Iran several months ago said he needed to know more about Persian culture and civilization and become familiar with Iranian traditions and rituals. 

Stone referred to Iran as one of Asia's major filmmaking centers saying that he "would like to introduce Persian culture and civilization to the West." 

The 27-year-old filmmaker is a graduate of history from Princeton University and has collaborated on many of his father's projects such as the 2004 Alexander. He has also directed a handful of documentaries.
