Robert Pattinson has signed on to play military investigator Eric Maddox—the man who spearheaded the capture of Saddam Hussein—in the psychological thriller Mission: Blacklist.  Maddox detailed the search with Davin Seay in the behind-the-scenes book Mission: Black List #1.  Writer/producer Erik Jendresen (Band of Brothers) adapted the screenplay; Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire is attached to direct.  Embarkment Films will shop around Mission: Blacklist at Cannes.

After the final chapter of the Twilight saga bows in November, Pattinson will make a hard break from the franchise with David Cronenberg‘s CosmopolisMission: Blacklist sounds like it belongs on the same career path, cementing Pattinson in the adult roles that he always seemed more drawn to.  You know, assuming he’s capable of such performances, and we can see him as more than just Edward Cullen.  Hit the jump for the book synopsis.

Antonio Banderas is a busy man these days. Currently, the Desperado star has five projects in various forms of production including Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin That I Inhabit due next year. Variety is now reporting that Banderas has also committed to the psychological thriller Solo, which the star will direct as well. This will mark Banderas’ third-outing as a director, having helmed 1999’s Crazy in Alabama and the 2006 film Summer Rain.

Written by Erik Jendresen, who penned the currently-in-development The Big Bang, also starring Banderas, Solo is said to be a sci-fi thriller about a colonel suffering from post-conflict trauma. Banderas is set to star as the colonel in the film, which is slated to shoot next year for a 2012 release. Solo will be produced by Banderas’ Green Moon label.
