Holy ****.

According to the report, this event was one of two times that the filmmakers were given classified names; the other was during an interview with a staffer. It was not the only time the team interacted with government staffers, though. Beginning literally the day after the public announcement that bin Laden had been killed, Boal and Bigelow were in email contact with representatives of the Department of Defense, a chain extensively cataloged in the document. Panetta was excited about the idea of the movie; as the report notes (and as has been reported previously), he hoped he'd be played in the movie by Al Pacino. (He had to settle for James Galdofini.)
