Argo script
Argo (2012)
Synopsis: On Nov. 4, 1979, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, Iran, taking 66 American hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge with the Canadian ambassador. Knowing that it's just a matter of time before the refugees are found and likely executed, the U.S. government calls on extractor Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) to rescue them. Mendez's plan is to pose as a Hollywood producer scouting locations in Iran and train the refugees to act as his "film" crew.

GALLEGOS:

Why?

AL GOLACINSKI:

To reason with them. *

Marines open the Chancery door, with a look --

23 INT. CHANCERY OFFICE - MORNING 23

FRED KUPKE, 34, communications officer, is shouting at

staffers who pile up documents for the shredders --

KUPKE:

Just everything. Don.’t sort it --

ANN SWIFT:

(on the phone)

-- NONE, there are no police --

ZERO --

24 EXT. CHANCERY - MORNING 24

Al Golacinski steps out onto the steps and immediately

there is shouting, and a protestor puts a GUN to his head

-- blindfolds him -- PUSHING AL.’S head to the ground...

25 INT. CONSULATE OFFICE - MORNING 25 *

CORA LIJEK:

-- Second floor -- anyone who can

hear this -- we need help --

As we MOVE DOWN the line of desks, JOE STAFFORD is also

on a radio repeating the same in FARSI --

Others PACK things.

26 INT. THE HALLWAY - INTO THE VAULT - MORNING 26

MARINES and STAFFERS -- including TOM AHERN -- RUN down

the hall, pushing a cart of items to secure. They reach

the security locker -- code the door -- and enter the

locker, heading to the INCINERATOR to begin destroying

classified material --

27 EXT. CHANCERY - MORNING 27 *

Golacinski HELD UP TO THE DOOR -- GUN TO HIS HEAD. He

starts to panic.
