Iran Suing “Argo” Producers
(CNN) — First, Iran said it would produce its own cinematic response to “Argo.”
Now, Tehran plans to sue Hollywood filmmakers who contribute to the production of such “anti-Iran” propaganda films.
State-run Press TV reports that Iranian officials have talked to an “internationally-renowned” French lawyer about filing such a suit.
“I will defend Iran against the films like Argo, which are produced in Hollywood to distort the country’s image,” said the lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, according to the Press TV report.
