Iranian filmmaker to produce response Affleck’s ‘Argo’

Days after actor and director Ben Affleck’s film Argo won the Golden Globe award for Best Drama, an Iranian filmmaker announced the production of his own version of the 1979 US hostage crisis.

“Iranian filmmaker and actor Ataollah Salmanian is slated to represent the story as an appropriate response to Ben Affleck’s blockbuster and ahistoric film, Argo,” Mehr News Agency reported. “The Iranian version titled The General Staff chronicles the story of the 20 American hostages who were delivered to the United States by Iran’s revolutionaries, Salmanian described.”

The production is set to begin next year.
