We learned in a radio interview with Eric Maddox that he met with Rob and approved of his casting in Mission: Blacklist. Rob recently sat down with Industria Magazine in London over drinks and what emerged is a fascinating in depth interview....his next projects were one of the topics up for discussion and that meeting with Eric Maddox came up. Here is an excerpt:
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.
