According to The Playlist, Robert Pattinson has dropped out of Mission: Blacklist. 

Robert Pattinson is having a hell of a year. The former “Twilight” star has two films appearing at Cannes 2014 – David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” and David Michod’s “The Rover” – his already-completed bucket list achievement includes working with Werner Herzog (“Queen of The Desert”), Anton Corbijn (“Life”)and his to-do list includes acting for auteurs like James Gray (“Lost City Of Z”), James Marsh (“Hold on to Me”) and director/actor Brady Corbet (“The Childhood of a Leader”).

But a busy plate often means something has to go by the wayside. So the Wrap is reporting that Pattinson has dropped out of the Saddam Hussein thriller “Mission: Blacklist.” A psychological thriller, the movie is a true story of military interrogator Eric Maddox on 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 wrote the script and Swedish filmmaker Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire still attached to direct. Having just wrapped Corbijn’s “Life” alongside Dane DeHaan, Pattinson apparently did not have sufficient time to prepare for the demanding role, so chose to drop out instead. That’s certainly a blog for Sauvaire’s project, but the project does sound pretty juicy so we assume a replacement may not be far behind. Pattinson, in the meantime, may just want a well-deserved rest.
