Robert Pattinson to Star in Thriller About Saddam Hussein Capture

Twilight star Robert Pattinson will don fatigues as Eric Maddox in Mission: Black List, a true story about an Army interrogator (Maddox) who helped track down Saddam Hussein's hideout in 2003. Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire is attached to direct. The story is based on Maddox's book, Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein — As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. The psychological thriller is certainly a departure from the teenage supernatural. Mission accomplished.
