So you want to come to Hollywood and and act like a big shot without actually doing anything? You’ll fit right in.
In 1979, during the Iranian Revolution, Islamic militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran and hold 52 Americans hostage. During the chaos, six men and women are able to flee the embassy before becoming hostages, seeking sanctuary at Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor’s home.
The Central Intelligence Agency and its retrieval specialist Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) concoct an unorthodox plan to help the six U.S. embassy employees escape Iran. Under the guise that they’re scouting exotic locations for a futuristic, science-fiction film called Argo, the six Americans will play the part of Canadian filmmakers so they can leave the country safely.
Directed by Ben Affleck, Argo is based on the true, declassified story that took place during the Iran Hostage crisis. Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay based on the 2007 Wired article “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran” by Joshuah Bearman. CIA agent Tony Mendez’s heroic work was kept top secret until President Bill Clinton lifted the mission’s classified status in 1997.
When it was announced that Superbad‘s Greg Mottola would be directing Larry David‘s improv comedy, the film’s only cast members were Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton. Now we are learning that the film has a new title, and that the cast has grown immensely.
THR reports that the comedy now titled, Clear History, will center on a marketing executive (David) who makes the terrible decision of getting into a petty argument with his boss and abruptly quits his job at a new electric car company. Ten years later he realizes the mistake he made when he sees the same company he worked for is now worth billions, so he changes his name and his reputation and rewards himself by purchasing a summer cottage on a private island. However, he bumps into the same boss he quit working for and from there he decides he wants to get revenge.
