Argo

(Link)
This story is about the Lord of Light movie production that turned into Argo: How Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light transformed into the CIA's Argo covert op

Here's the original W I R E D story about the CIA operation. I think this the story that inspired the Argo movie: How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans From Tehran

Yes, I know.

As a geek, I still would have liked to have seen or heard Zelazny get a name-check in the film. I'll edit my post to make that more clear.

You're right. At least some of the people involved in the operation had to know who Zelazny was. And Lord of Light is one of the best SF novels of all time and deserves the recognition. Who knows? Maybe someday it will be filmed in Iran for real.
