Penn, Pop added to ‘Persepolis’

Sean Penn and Iggy Pop have signed on as voice talent for the English-language version of Sony Picture Classics’ animated “Persepolis.” The recruits join the already-announced Gena Rowlands and Catherine Deneuve for the animated film based on Marjane Satrapi’s autobiographical, bestselling graphic novel growing up in Iran during the 1979 revolution. Chiara Mastroianni, Deneuve’s daughter, will voice the lead character of Satrapi as she did in the French version. Penn will play Satrapi’s long-suffering father while Pop will voice the role of the young girl’s rebellious and politically active uncle. Work on the English-version dub will begin this summer. Film will be released Stateside in the fall and producers are trying to ready an English-language version in time for its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
