ETA: Maddox mentioned Rob and ‘Mission: Blacklist’ in another interview with KGOU. You can listen the audio at the source, he talks about Rob at 13:25.

Here’s a transcript of what he says:

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.

*VIDEO* New interview with Eric Maddox – ‘Mission: Blacklist’ starts filming in August   12 comments

News on 6 (Oklahoma) interviewed Eric Maddox.

Now, the story is about to go public in a very mainstream way. Maddox wrote a book a couple of years ago. You probably haven’t seen much of it, but a movie studio immediately bought the rights.

Robert Pattinson, of Twilight fame, has signed on to play Maddox, and the screenplay is being done by the writer behind “Band of Brothers”.

Shooting begins this August.

Meanwhile, Donald Rumsfeld was so eager to keep Maddox’s services, that he established a civilian force of interrogators, hiring Maddox as the very first one.

His work for the Department of Defense continues to this day.

Eric Maddox talks about the movie Mission: Blacklist, casting & meeting Rob and what he might wear in the movie

ROBERICMADDOX Eric Maddox – interrogator, author and OU alumnus explained the process of finding and capturing Saddam Hussein and detailed the dilemmas he faced to about 300 people in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Molly Shi Boren Ballroom.
This same story is encapsulated in his book, “Mission: Blacklist #1,” on which a movie will be based starring Robert Pattinson, who will play Maddox.

“Somebody wants to make a movie about my story – it’s very exciting,” Maddox said.

Maddox said he has already met and gotten to know Pattinson.

“He’s a great guy,” Maddox said. “When they brought his name up to me, I had never heard of him before. I don’t believe in vampire movies and stories. I just didn’t know who he was.”

Maddox said he wore a single blue shirt for months in his search for Hussein, with no other changes of clothes. The shirt has a bigmouth bass embossed on it, Velcro pockets and bloodstains.

“I’ve still got it [the shirt.] I think Rob is gonna wear it in the movie,” Maddox said.

Maddox had to wait five years to tell his story and write the book due to the U.S. government preferring to keep it classified, he said.

“Since then, the United States government wanted me to endorse the movie, and wanted me to say who I am and what I do,” he said.
