The sexy Twilight star takes on American hero for his next role. Pattinson will play Eric Maddox, a military interrogator who led the 2003 capture of Saddam Hussein. Twilight fans will get to see their favorite vampire play a soldier, a role that is completely different from what we are used to seeing Rpatz portray. The movie is set to begin filming in the next few months, after Pattinson promotes his latest flick, Cosmopolis, at the Cannes Film Festival.
The movie is destined to be a thriller as it will be directed by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, with a screenplay by Band of Brothers' Eric Jendresen. The movie is based on the book Mission: Black List #1,written by Eric Maddox with Davin Seay. We cannot wait to see Rpatz in a more serious role.
Do we smell a possible Oscar in the next year? We sure hope so!
