We salute you, R-Patz!
Robert Pattinson will forgoe his vampiric ways for his second post-Twilight role as Eric Maddox, the military interrogator who led the capture of Saddam Hussein back in 2003.
Mission: Blacklist, based on the book of the same name, is written by Maddox himself, and will be directed by Jean-Stephane Sauvaire with a screenplay penned by Band of Brothers’ Eric Jenresen.
Producer Ross M. Dinerstein says of the ‘true life’ film:
"This movie is a gripping, edge of your seat thriller. I have been inspired by Robert and Jean-Stéphane's dedication to tell this story in the most authentic way possible."
But, before R-Patz can don his military garb, he must survive an epic, odyssey-like limo ride in Cosmopolis.
We are LOVING these non-fang roles, Robbie! We never much liked you all pale and sparkly…
Oh who are we kidding! Of course we did! (But don't tell anyone, m'kay?!)
