Bigelow, who won the Best Director Oscar for The Hurt Locker, is making the film about the hunt for Bin Laden and his killing.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., asked the inspectors general of the CIA and Defense Department to examine what information the adminstration had provided about the covert military operations.

Press secretary Jay Carney told reporters:

    "When people, including you in this room, are working on articles, books, documentaries or movies that involve the president, ask to speak to administration officials, we do our best to accommodate them to make sure that facts are correct. That is hardly a novel approach to the media. We do not discuss classified information. And I would hope that as we face the continued threat from terrorism, the House Committee on Homeland Security would have more important topics to discuss than a movie."
