Look Into His Eyes: Promo Poster For Robert Pattinson's Saddam Hussein Movie 'Mission: Blacklist'

With a role in David Cronenberg's upcoming freak fest "Cosmopolis," Robert Pattinson continues to take on parts that...well, that are as far away from Edward in the "Twilight" movies as possible. And so to that end, last week he signed up to star in the thriller "Mission: Blacklist," and in case you missed the news, he'll be the guy hunting down Saddam Hussein.

With a role in David Cronenberg's upcoming freak fest "Cosmopolis," Robert Pattinson continues to take on parts that...well, that are as far away from Edward in the "Twilight" movies as possible. And so to that end, last week he signed up to star in the thriller "Mission: Blacklist," and in case you missed the news, he'll be the guy hunting down Saddam Hussein.

With the Cannes Film Festival around the corner, the producers are gonna have to start selling this thing, so they've banged out a sales poster that feels like something that was made for a movie that was just announced last week. Featuring a hypnotic closeup on Pattinson's eyes (SQUEEEEEE!), the one sheet boasts a pretty generic tagline and not much else, though the weird design makes it seem like Saddam Hussein is a co-star. Based on the book "Mission: Blacklist #1," the psychological thriller will be modeled from the true story of military interrogator Eric Maddox (who wrote the novel with Davin Seay) about the hunt for the Iraqi leader, and the events that led him to uncover the wanted man in a spiderhole in Tikrit. "Band Of Brothers" writer and producer Erik Jendresen is penning the script, with Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire directing.

We presume if sales go well, this one will start ramping, and if they don't....then it won't. But until then, hang this on your wall, girls. [MTV
