WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Pentagon says it's looking into concerns that the Obama administration may have given a Hollywood filmmaker too many details about the secret mission last May that killed Osama bin Laden.

The Pentagon inspector general's office covering intelligence has informed Rep. Peter King, who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, that it will investigate the Pentagon's release of information to filmmakers about the raid in Pakistan.

King, a New York Republican, says the CIA is also examining its future interactions with the entertainment industry.

King has questioned administration cooperation with Kathryn Bigelow, director of the Oscar-winning picture "The Hurt Locker." She's working on a movie about the hunt for Bin Laden.

The White House has denied discussing classified information.
