Amir Shervan (Persian: امیر شروان), born Amir Hosein Ghaffari (Persian: اميرحسين غفاری), was an Iranian film director, producer, actor, and screenwriter.
After studying theatre in Pasadena, California, he returned to his home country and had a prolific cinema career that began with Parviz Khatibi's 1949 film Vaareite Bahari (واریته بهاری). After the Iranian Revolution, he relocated to California and from 1987 to 1992, produced and directed several action films, including Samurai Cop, which starred Matt Hannon and Robert Z'Dar. Samurai Cop was restored in a brand new HD transfer for theatrical and DVD release by distributor Cinema Epoch in 2013. Cinema Epoch will also release Shervan's other works, including Killing American Style, Young Rebels, and Gypsy in restored versions.
