Remember Me

Story by Jack Foley

ROBERT Pattinson is to star in a new psychological thriller that tells the true story of the man who spearheaded the capture of Saddam Hussein.

Mission: Black List would mark the British actor’s first role after leaving the Twilight franchise behind him.

It is based on the book Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein – As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture by Eric Maddox, the Army interrogator who played a key role in pinpointing Hussein’s whereabouts following the successful invasion by the US post-9/11.

Davin Seay co-wrote the book.

Jean-Stephane Sauvaire is also attached to direct the film, which will be up for sale at the upcoming Cannes Film Market.
