Twilight star Robert Pattinson is all set to play the lead role in Mission: Blacklist after he got the thumbs up from the very war hero that he will be portraying.
The film is about the capture of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi dictator. Pattinson has been signed on to portray Eric Maddox, the real-life military interrogator who wrote the book that the film is based on.
The movie is already being talked about at Cannes as Maddox went public with his views on the casting. He said that he spent fourteen hours with Pattinson, who spent all that time talking only about the project and nothing else. This made Maddox realize that Pattinson would put in the hours and dedication required, and the war hero is now certain that the team that has been put together for the job is absolutely perfect.
