Eric also mentioned Robert Pattinson and the project during an interview with KGOU Radio. Here is a portion of what he shared, thanks to Spunk Ransom:

GRILLOT: So I have to mention here, as we’re finishing up, your book Mission: Blacklist is going to be made into a film. Robert Pattinson’s been cast to play you in your movie. How do you feel about that? What are we going to learn? What are we going to see in this film?

MADDOX: I’m very excited about it. The one thing I’ve asked is that the movie be as real as possible. And working with Rob, that’s the one thing he insists on. He always asks me, ‘Is this real? Did this happen?’ So it’s exciting. We’ll see.

GRILLOT: Well we’ll be looking forward to that in the next year.

Robert Pattinson Tells Industria Magazine How He Met With Eric Maddox For 16 hours

Robert Pattinson likes to spend a lot of time researching his roles before filming a movie and if that means spending 16 hours with Eric Maddox to get the low down on how he found Saddam Hussein then that’s exactly what he’ll do.

Would anyone else like to have been a fly on the wall in that room?

Transcript
Q: What are you doing next?
A: I’m doing Mission: Blacklist #1 with Jean-Stephane Sauvaire who made Johnny Mad Dog, about Eric Maddox who is the interrogator who led the US to find Saddam Hussein. I hung out with Eric in Washington, he had just got back from Afghanistan, and he gave me the full run down, over 16 hours, of how he found Saddam Hussein. He has a photographic memory and talking through every single detail. Hopefully we will be shooting in Iraq, I think it’s going to be very cool.

He also mentioned meeting Eric and the pressure of doing a good job on the movie to “Skip” Magazine in a translated article

SKIP: Has your approach to looking for parts changed now?
Robert: Sure, I’m older and more confident. I was always afraid that I would never get offered any roles like this one. And to be invited to Cannes on top of it all, you suddenly begin to really see yourself as an actor. I mean Wow, I can really do cool movies as well (laughs)! I have very recently signed on to a couple of projects which, at this time last year, I wouldn’t have thought I’d be able to do. In one of them I’ll play a soldier who was present when they arrested Saddam Hussein. To prepare I’ve spent some time with the guy and of course it’s very important for him that we get it right. That’s quite a lot of pressure – but I like it that way!

AUDIO: “Eric Maddox Is One Of The Most Fascinating People I’ve Ever Met & The Story’s Amazing” – Robert Pattinson

MissionBlacklist France got the chance to talk to Robert Pattinson at the “Cosmopolis” Premiere in Berlin and asked him why he chose the role of Eric in “Mission: Blacklist” and also about scouting filming locations in Iraq

Transcript:

Question: Hi! One of your next projects is Mission:Blacklist. What made you choose this role and are you really going to scout locations in Iraq?

Robert Pattinson : I read the script. I thought the script…I didn’t even realize that the script was a real story and then they told me it was a true story. I met Eric Maddox who it’s based on. He’s one of the most fascinating people I have ever met and the story’s amazing. We’re looking into Iraq, I mean he was there, I mean it’s quite difficult obviously to go there, but I think it would be a good thing to do to go and start… you know.
