Robert Pattinson cast in Saddam Hussein film

Hollywood hottie Robert Pattinson continues to climb up the ladder of success. The Twilight star has shed his sparkling skin to play leading roles in two more major films. He has been cast as Eric Maddox in Mission: Blacklist and a thief named Reynolds in The Rover. Both movies are still in development and are said to be thrillers. Mission: Blacklist takes place in 2003 and is about the search and capture of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The film, based on the novel Mission: Black List #1, will be directed by Jean-Stephane Sauvaire. Producer Ross M. Dinerstein says, “The movie is a gripping, edge of your seat thriller. I have been inspired by Robert and Jean-Stephane’s dedication to tell this story in the most authentic way possible.” There is little known about the movie The Rover, however, Deadline Hollywood reports that the film takes place in the rough Australian outback. ~Krystin Edgerton

    I doubt that Clarice since the movies he’s been taking hardly caterto the Twilight fandom. 2 of those coming out are rated R.

    Maybe the professionals who hire him actually think he’s got talent hmmm?
