Affleck, Clooney faking it for movie

Ben Affleck will direct and George Clooney will produce “Argo”, a political thriller about the the Tehran hostage crisis.

Based on a Wired article titled “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran”, the story – says THR – fixes on how, during the occupation of the American embassy by Iranians in 1979, a rescue effort was mounted by the CIA and the Canadian government to extract six U.S. diplomats.

The CIA used a disguise expert and concocted a scenario that involved the six being a Hollywood crew scouting a movie titled Argo. Under those disguises, they were able to flee the country.

Comic writer Jack Kirby was responsible for the drawings and movie designs that helped convince the C.I.A. it was a movie.

Sounds like one to look out for.
