About Movie: Argo is an upcoming historical action film about the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran, Iran during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. The story centers on how the CIA, with help from Hollywood and the Canadian embassy, used a fake movie project to smuggle six Americans out of Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis. Based on true events, "Argo" chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis--the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA "exfiltration" specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.
Additional Notes: Based on a Wired magazine article by Joshuah Bearmna, published in 2007 and titled "How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran."
