WASHINGTON – In a town that runs on access, Hollywood filmmakers get it, too – and that apparently has the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security concerned about what kind of access the Obama administration has provided to filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow about the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, the award-winning team behind “The Hurt Locker,” have been developing a project on the search for bin Laden since 2008. Boal is a former magazine journalist who spent time with U.S. forces in Iraq and has extensive contacts in the military. The movie is about the decade-long “black ops” effort to capture or kill the al-Qaida leader.

On Wednesday, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., called on the Pentagon and the CIA to investigate, saying he was worried about the possibility that classified information was leaked to Bigelow and representatives of Sony Pictures, which has acquired distribution rights to the movie.

Officials Wednesday reacted to the call for an investigation with bemusement, arguing that King indicated that his concern was sparked in part by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd writing that the “moviemakers are getting top-level access to the most classified mission in history.”

Bigelow and Boal said their film “has been in the works for many years and integrates the collective efforts of three administrations (Clinton, Bush, and Obama) as well as the cooperative strategies and implementation by the Department of Defense and Central Intelligence Agency.”

Bandit signs movie deal

EVERETT, Wash. – The young Washington state man dubbed the Barefoot Bandit after a cross-country crime spree brought him folk outlaw status has reportedly signed a movie deal worth as much as $1.3 million with 20th Century Fox.

The Daily Herald reports that the money will be used to help pay the minimum $1.4 million that 20-year-old Colton Harris-Moore owes in restitution to the victims of his two-year-long crime spree.

Seattle entertainment lawyer Lance Rosen negotiated the deal on Harris-Moore’s behalf. He says it’s an unusual amount of money to be paid for anyone’s life story rights.

Harris-Moore pleaded guilty in June to seven federal felony charges. Sentencing is set for October. He still faces state court charges.
