Robert Pattinson Eyes Iraq's Deadliest in 'Mission: Blacklist' Poster
Just recently we learned that Robert Pattinson was gearing up for a stint in Iraq. The actor isn't stepping away from acting to join the military (don't worry, ladies), but he will be taking post in Mission: Blacklist, a military thriller based on a book by military interrogator Eric Maddox with Davin Seay which chronicles the inside story of the search for Saddam Hussein from the point of view of Maddox himself who spearheaded his capture. Pattinson is playing Maddox himself, and since the film still needs to be sold at Cannes, a promo poster with Pattinson's dreamy eyes and a list of Iraq's most wanted has just surfaced.
Here's the promo poster for Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire's Mission: Blacklist from MTV:
Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, who had his film Johnny Mad Dog premiere at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and won the Prize of Hope, will direct the adaptation of Mission: Blacklist, which is being scripted by "Band of Brothers" writer and producer Eric Jendresen. Robert Pattinson plays Staff Sergeant Eric Maddox, who was deployed to Baghdad alongside intelligence analysts and fellow interrogators, and launched raids on High Value Targets within the insurgency. But hunting them required bold and untested tactics, and the ability to never lose sight of the target, often hiding in plain sight. The film is being sold at Cannes now so stay tuned.
