    Behind The Scenes


    About The Film

    On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA "exfiltration" specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

    Based on true events, Warner Bros. Pictures' and GK Films' dramatic thriller "Argo" chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades.

    The Cast

    Led by Ben Affleck, "Argo" also stars Oscar? winner Alan Arkin ("Little Miss Sunshine"), Bryan Cranston (TV's "Breaking Bad") and John Goodman ("You Don't Know Jack"). The main cast also includes Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, Zeljko Ivanek, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Chris Messina, Michael Parks, and Taylor Schilling.

    The Filmmakers

    Academy Award? winner Ben Affleck ("The Town," "Good Will Hunting") directs and stars in the film, which is being produced by Academy Award? winner George Clooney ("Syriana"), Oscar? nominee Grant Heslov ("Good Night, and Good Luck.") and Affleck.

    Affleck is directing the film from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a selection from Master in Disguise by Antonio Mendez. David Klawans, Chris Brigham, Graham King, Tim Headington, Chay Carter and Nina Wolarsky are serving as executive producers.

    The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar?-nominated director of photography Rodrigo Prieto ("Brokeback Mountain"), production designer Sharon Seymour ("The Town"); Oscar?-nominated editor William Goldenberg ("Seabiscuit," "The Insider"); and Oscar?-nominated costume designer Jacqueline West ("The Social Network," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button").

    Filming on "Argo" is being accomplished in Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Istanbul. Slated for release in 2012, "Argo" is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with GK Films, a Smoke House Pictures production, to be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
