Robert Pattinson Lands Role In Military Movie
May 3, 2012
Forget Twilight, Robert Pattinson has landed a new role in Mission: Blacklist, a film about locating Saddam Hussein.
According to The Sun, Robert, 25, will play Eric Maddox, “a US army interrogator…who spearheaded the 2003 operation to pinpoint the leader’s location.”
This role is a huge change from his character Edward Cullen from Twilight, but that is a good thing. Edward can show his league of female fans a different side. A side I personally hope is a little more rugged, manly, and grown up.
Unfortunately, Robert’s female fans may not be happy to see that his beautiful vampire locks have been shaved off. Robert is now sporting a clean military buzz cut.
The new film is still in development, however here is a sneak peak of what the movie will be about (Courtesy of Mission Blacklist):
Mission: Black List #1 is the true story of Sergeant Maddox’s efforts to discover the hidden location of Saddam Hussein after the fall of his regime in 2003. Mission: Black List #1 is told from the point of view of its protagonist, Sergeant Maddox.
The story begins with Sergeant Maddox’s arrival in Iraq in July 2003 and extends through to when he pinpoints Hussein’s location, just hours before the expiration of his tour in December 2003. Central to the story are the interrogations of progressively more important insurgents as Sergeant Maddox closes in on Hussein’s location.
During these interrogations, Sergeant Maddox undergoes his own process of self-discovery, as he learns the art of interrogation, how to find the right psychological lever among the target’s fears, hopes, ambitions and pride that, once pressure is applied, coaxes the target to divulge the information he conceals. From the clutter of truth and lies that Sergeant Maddox learns in these interrogations, he assembles a blueprint that leads him to the leaders of the insurgency and, ultimately, Saddam Hussein.
When Sergeant Maddox first joined his unit in Tikrit in June 2003, it was clear to him that he would have to earn the respect of both the soldiers performing the midnight raids against the insurgents as well as his fellow members on the intelligence team, and, as his methods began to show extraordinary results, he found that he had earned not only their respect, but also their trust.
