Remember Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari? Sure you do. He was the one who was locked up for being a spy for Mossad by a humor-impaired Iranian government after being interviewed by Jason Jones on The Daily Show.

Well, if you still don't remember, you can probably just wait for the movie version. The one that's being produced by Jon Stewart

There's not yet any studio involvement, but Stewart’s production company, Busboy Productions, is seeking a writer and director to take on the project.

The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
