Robert Pattinson


The 'Twilight Saga' actor has been tapped to star in the military thriller, which will be directed Jean-Stephane Sauvaire and written by Erik Jendersen.

Robert Pattinson is set to get grittier in his next movie. After landing dark roles in both "Bel Ami" and "Cosmopolis", the British actor will next star in a military thriller called "Mission: Blacklist", Variety reported.

Details of what character the "Twilight Saga" actor will play are still scarce. The movie itself will revolve around the search for former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and an interrogator named Eric Maddox, who spearheaded his capture.

"Mission: Blacklist" will be directed by Jean-Stephane Sauvaire with "Band of Brothers" scribe Erik Jendersen penning the script, which is based on Eric Maddox and Davin Seay's novel "Mission: Black List #1".

Pattinson will soon be seen in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis", which will have its world premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival in France. He will also return to "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II", which will arrive in the U.S. on November 16.
