I’m doing Mission: Blacklist #1 with Jean-Stephane Sauvaire who made Johnny Mad Dog, about Eric Maddox who is the interrogator who led the US to find Saddam Hussein. I hung out with Eric in Washington, he had just got back from Afghanistan, and he gave me the full run down, over 16 hours, of how he found Saddam Hussein. He has a photographic memory and talking through every single detail. Hopefully we will be shooting in Iraq, I think it’s going to be very cool. I’m also going to do David Michod’s new film The Rover, he’s part of this group called the Blue Tongue and I have been a fan of theirs for years and would watch all their short films on YouTube. They are a group of friends who have reinvigorated the entire Australian film community, they can all write, act and direct and they only employ Australians. I read the script and desperately auditioned for it, I think I’m the only non-Australian person in it.

Eric Maddox mentions Robert Pattinson

rkloving:

Eric Maddox who Robert Pattinson will be playing in Mission: Blacklist was on the radio earlier and there were a couple of mentions about Rob.

He just mentioned Robert Pattinson is starring in Mission: Blacklist. He got the FINAL DECISION on casting and he supports Rob’s casting.

RT @fab_w@blacklistmovie he said the decision was a no brainer :))

Maddox met with Robert Pattinson for 14 hours.

He realized Rob is someone very dedicated to his work.
