WASHINGTON (AP) -- Three senators have written to the head of Sony Pictures Entertainment criticizing the movie "Zero Dark Thirty" as "grossly inaccurate and misleading" in its suggestion that torture produced the tip that led to Osama bin Laden.

The three members of the Senate Intelligence committee -- Dianne Feinstein, Carl Levin and John McCain -- told the president and CEO of Sony, Michael Lynton, that he has an obligation to say that torture in the hunt for bin Laden was fiction and not based on fact.

The lawmakers said the CIA detainee who provided significant information about bin Laden did so before any harsh interrogation.

The three described themselves as fans of Sony movies. But they warned that Americans will see the film and believe the events are factual.
