Robert Pattinson has reportedly lined up a job after the "Twilight" franchise ends with "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," and this time it looks like he'll tell a true story.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Pattinson is set to star in a psychological thriller that will recount the real-life story of the soldier who spearheaded the hunt for Saddam Hussein.
In the film, titled "Mission: Blacklist," the 25-year-old "Twilight" actor will play Army interrogator Eric Maddox.
The real Maddox chronicled his role in uncovering Hussein's location in the book "Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein - As Told by the Solider Who Masterminded His Capture," along with co-writer Davin Seay.
"Mission: Blacklist" is said to have Jean-Stephane Sauvaire on board to direct.
