We totally agree with him!

Robert Pattinson Talks About The Possibility Of Filming “Mission: Blacklist” In Iraq

Rob mentioned “Mission:Blacklist” and the possibility of filming the movie in Iraq to a couple of magazines.

First up this translated interview from “Les InRockuptibles”

“I have a project with Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, who directed Johnny Mad Dog. It’s called Mission: Blacklist, a movie about the search and capture of Saddam Hussein. And you know what? He wants to film in Iraq. F**k yeah! Nobody else would have the balls to do that! Everyone wants him to go to Tunisia but he insists: it’s happening in Iraq, I’m filming in Iraq. He’s right! At least, as long as we don’t get kidnapped *laughs*.”

He also mentions about wanting to shoot in Iraq to Metro France

Your next movie will be with Cronenberg then?
I don’t know when exactly we’re going to shoot. It will be David’s first movie in America. In Los Angeles, to be exact. It will be about the industry of cinematography and I promise that it’s going to be really weird. Till then, I’m doing Mission: Blacklist with the French director, Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, who did Johnny Mad Dog. It’ll be about the search of Saddam Hussein and we want to film in Iraq, in Tikrit, even tho it’s complicated. But I’m 26 and it’s the kind of thing that tempts me. If someone should do it, it will be me!

Meet the Director: Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire’s early work in short film, ‘A Dios’

This series on the blog will introduce you to Jean-Stéphane Suavaire’s filmography and first up is a short film/documentary he did back in 2001, A Dios. It’s less than 5 minutes and very charming. I loved how he shot the film and seeing the boy’s world through the frame of a television. Some shots looked like they could actually be TV.

Set in Colombia, here are film descriptions I came across:

Television without electricity in South America; A kid in Colombia wanders around with his television frame.

Short and sweet, you get to see what some of Sauvaire’s earlier work looked like. Before you worry about any language barriers you might sense at the start of the film (although I was proud of myself for understanding most of the French subtitles LOL), it’s only in the beginning. The film features music and ambient sound. It’s all about the nonverbal communication. ;) Enjoy!

Thank you, TC, for the heads up! I loved this short film :)
