Though highly regarded by industry insiders, Terrio's screenplays went unproduced until 2011, when producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov hired him to pen a script based on the Canadian Caper, a famed joint effort between the CIA and Canadian government to rescue American diplomats trapped in Iran during the 1979 revolution by means of an elaborate ruse to portray them as Hollywood film scouts researching Middle Eastern locations for a science fiction movie. Directed by and co-starring Ben Affleck, the resulting picture, "Argo" (2011), was a box office hit as well as a critical success which earned Terrio an Oscar for Best (Adapted) Screenplay. He was soon attached to several high-profile feature projects, including a reunion with Clooney and Heslov on a crime thriller for director Paul Greengrass, an English-language remake of the French film "Tell No One" (2006), and "A Murder Foretold," a drama based on a New Yorker article about a Guatemalen businessman's search for his wife's killers. In 2012, he signed a much-publicized two-picture script deal with Warner Bros.
