Less than a fortnight ago, Thn brought you news that Twilight Saga pin-up Robert Pattinson had signed up for duty on military-thriller Mission: Blacklist. Now, before shooting has even begun, we have a teaser poster from the upcoming movie, set to detail the hunt for Saddam Hussein.
Pattinson will take the role of Eric Maddox, the man who led the mission that eventually located the notorious Iraqi leader. That, in turn, led to his capture, trial, and ultimately his death sentence. The film, to be directed by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, is based on the novel Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein — As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. Band Of Brothersscreenwriter Erik Jendresen has adapted the source material.
