Really?? Really, Iran??
Argo's just a movie!
Everyone knows that movies stretch and distort the truth — like, we all know that the Canadians' roles in the film were under-represented, even though they had a whole lot more to do with the whole real plan than what was said! We don't see them calling up their lawyers! LOLz!
Regardless of that, the events actually happened! Americans WERE captured in 1979, and there WAS a rescue mission!
Yet, French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in the country anyway, discussing with officials how they might go about filing the lawsuit. Of course, they'd probably never use her — she has a dark past for being the lawyer for infamous Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, aka Carlos the Jackal — and we're willing to bet they don't want to be seen alongside former clients like that.
But they ARE looking into legal action, and have even privately screened the movie for a group of Iranian cultural officials and movie critics!
We wonder what will come first, though: the lawsuit, or Iran's own film version of the events called The General Staff!
Also, do U think they'll cast Ben Affleck?
