Robert Pattinson’s ‘Mission: Blacklist’ Gets Swedish Director

Project details Saddam Hussein's capture

Swedish director Jesper Ganslandt will direct thriller “Mission: Blacklist,” starring Robert Pattinson as the military interrogator who spearheaded the capture of Saddam Hussein.

Pattinson came on board the project last year when Jean-Stephane Sauvaire was attached to direct. “Band of Brothers” writer Erik Jendresen, Dylan Kussman and Trace Sheehan  adapted the story of the search for Saddam Hussein, based on Eric Maddox’s 2008 book “Mission: Black List #1 – The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein – As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture.”

Ross M. Dinerstein of Preferred Content is producing alongside Jendresen and Kevin Waller. Code Entertainment is producing and financing with production expected to start in the fall.
