Now this is a story I'm curious to see. Robert Pattinson will star in an adaptation of MISSION: BLACK LIST #1 by military interrogator Eric Maddox (with Davin Seay) "that details the true, inside story of the search for Saddam Hussein and the interrogator, Eric Maddox, who spearheaded his capture." Adapted by Erik Jendresen ("Band of Brothers") and to be directed by Frenchman Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire (JOHNNY MAD DOG), the project will be sold at Cannes Film Festival later this month.

Coupled with his upcoming turn in David Cronenberg's incredible-looking COSMOPOLIS, MISSION: BLACKLIST seems to mark a significant shift in Robert Pattinson's career. While it may have been the career he always wanted in the first place, the fact of the matter is that his presence in The Twilight Saga has coated him in such a thick layer of glitter that it's going to take some truly great work to brush it all off.

Think Pattinson has it in him?

I agree with everyone who thinks that MISSION: BLACK LIST #1 is a bad name for a movie, however by reading the article a bit more carefully you will discover that MISSION: BLACK LIST #1 is the name of the book the movie is based on; the name of the movie is simply MISSION: BLACK LIST.

I like Pattinson

Yeah, he's in those godawful Twilight movies, but hey, I would be too for that kind of paycheck. Other than his Twilight roles, I think the guy is a perfectly fine actor. I'd like to see him branch out with more roles like this.

Taylor Lautner, on the other hand, can fuck off after Twilight is said and done with.

There aren't many successful actors that don't have a few (or more than a few duds) in their closet, so I'm not gonna hold that against Pattinson. And Cosmopolis does indeed look great.

Very interesting to see...
And the Title does not bother me one bit.

Remember all those right-wingers who had a deck of cards printed up with the top 52 yokels in Iraq to catch? They should call this movie the Ace of Clubs (or whatever Saddam was) and use the card imagery for the poster. Because Mission Black List #1 is a shitty title.

They should change the title. Don't get me wrong. "Mission: Black List #1" sounds cool but it will be confusing. People might think it's another Mission: Impossible movie.
