Iran Plans to Sue Hollywood Over Oscar-Winning Film 'Argo'

Iranian authorities are planning to sue Hollywood over Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning film "Argo" as a result of the movie’s allegedly "unrealistic portrayal" of the country, according to reports. French attorney Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in Iran for talks with officials over how and where to file the lawsuit. "We will be able to block distributors of the movie, force them to apologize and challenge them to confess that the movie is nothing but a sheer lie," Coutant-Peyre told the Mehr news agency.
