Robert Pattinson is one busy guy, that’s for sure. And no, it’s not all about that new Twilight, it’s also not all about Cosmopolis, because Pattinson is now attached to lead project titled Mission: Blacklist, which will be directed by Jean-Stephane Sauvaire.
The movie is already being described as a military thriller that will center on the search for Saddam Hussein and the interrogator, Eric Maddox, who spearheaded his capture.
As you already guess, Pattinson is on board to play Eric Maddox, the young soldier who had spearheaded the search, and was among the few people not surprised when the shocking announcement of Saddam Hussein’s capture was made on December 14, 2003.
In his final moments in Iraq—having just broken the detainee who provided him with a map to Saddam’s location through psychologically subtle, nonviolent interrogation – Maddox had requested his team undertake one last mission.
Mission: Blacklist is adapted by Band of Brothers writer and producer Erik Jendresen from the novel Mission: Black List #1, written by Maddox with Davin Seay.
Ross M. Dinerstein, managing partner of Preferred Content will produce the movie alongside Jendresen and Kevin Waller.
