VIDEO: Robert Pattinson talks about filming in Iraq and his parents reaction

Excerpt from MTV:

Nerve-racking as “The Rover” is, it pales in comparison to the real-life dangers presented by “Mission: Blacklist,” Pattinson’s upcoming war movie based on the true story of Army interrogator Eric Maddox, who was involved in the capture of Saddam Hussein. The role requires Pattinson to film in Iraq, which understandably made his family members uncomfortable at first — but the actor thinks his loved ones are beginning to warm up to the idea.

“My parents seem to be coming around to it now,” he said with a laugh. “That’s strange. I don’t know what happened.”

Rob Pattinson talks ‘Mission: Blacklist’ shooting in Iraq – “beautiful, stunning palaces look like Kubrick sets”

In case you can’t see the video, here’s the transcript of the section discussing Mission: Blacklist:

Josh Horowitz: That’s the word, that you may be shooting this film in Iraq. Are you looking forward to that? Is that the plan?

Robert Pattinson: The director is there now and I want to do it there. Obviously it’s quite difficult to shoot there. I think it’s a fascinating country. The director has been sending me pictures of the actual palaces where the US army was based and they’re beautiful. Just stunning. They look like Kubrick sets and they’re all empty just sitting there.
