British actor and teenage heartthrob Robert Pattinson has been roped in by Embankment Films as the leading man in their upcoming project ‘Mission: Blacklist’. Directed by Frenchman Jean-Stephane Sauvaire this military thriller is based on Eric Maddox and Davin Seay’s novel “Mission: Black List #1”.
Robert Pattinson will play the role of Maddox, an interrogator who spearheaded the search for the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. The movie expected to start filming shortly but the production house has already released the first look of Robert Pattinson in the movie.
The first look poster focuses on Pattinson eyes. The poster is also filled with an assortment of letters. Some that stand out in white features a tagline that reads, “In a world of lies, only one man can see the truth.” Meanwhile, the lower part of the one-sheet displays the name of Saddam Hussein.
