UPI News Service, 03/13/2013 

A French lawyer says she is helping Iranian officials sue filmmakers behind what they regard as anti-Iran propaganda films such as "Argo," CNN reported.

"I will defend Iran against the films like 'Argo,' which are produced in Hollywood to distort the country's image," CNN Wednesday quoted Isabelle Coutant-Peyre as saying.

Directed by Ben Affleck, "Argo" won the Best Picture Oscar this year. It is about the rescue of U.S. diplomats during the 1979-80 Iran hostage crisis.

"The Iranophobic American movie attempts to describe Iranians as overemotional, irrational, insane, and diabolical while at the same, the CIA agents are represented as heroically patriotic," Iran's state-run Press TV said.

CNN did not say exactly who the officials looking to sue the filmmakers are, what they are seeking in damages or where and when the lawsuit is to be filed.
