"Iran announced today that it will sue Hollywood for creating films the Islamic Republic alleges intentionally 'propagate fear of Iran throughout the world,' according to state media reports. Citing director Ben Affleck’s Oscar-winning film 'Argo' as 'the most recent example of various fear-mongering tactics' used by Hollywood, the semi-official Fars News Agency said French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, widely known for defending Venezuelan-born terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez ('Carlos the Jackal'), is in Tehran for talks with Iranian government officials to determine where and how a lawsuit should be filed."
