Rob will help capture Saddam Hussein in this real-life action movie — we’re so excited!
Rob, 25, will star in Mission: Blacklist, our sister site Deadline reports.
The psychological thriller — based on the book Mission: Black List #1 by military interrogator Eric Maddox — follows the true, inside story of the intense hunt for Saddam Hussein, which Eric spearheaded, until Saddam was captured. The film will be directed by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire.
“This movie is a gripping, edge of your set thriller “, says Ross M. Dinerstein, one of the film’s producers. ” I have been inspired by Robert and Jean-Stephane’s dedication.”
It sounds like Rob is going to be playing a pretty intense military character and he’ll have to get super buffed-up to be in top shape. We know Rob hates working out, but we guess he will have to endure to take on this challenging new role.
