Rob talks haircut for Mission: Blacklist with Interview Germany

Here's the excerpt about MB:
Interview: Mr. Pattinson, your hair is long again. Last time, you had a crew cut. Did you cut your hair for Bel Ami or for Cosmopolis?
Robert Pattinson: Neither. That was for a movie where I play the soldier who found Saddam Hussein. The shooting should begin in the Spring, but was postponed to the Fall.

Magazine says Mission: Blacklist will be filmed entirely in Iraq starting next month

That's right. In this interview with Blackbook, "Rob's heart" says shooting starts next month and the movie will be entirely filmed in Iraq.
Here's an excerpt:
Ocasionally, I spike when something he reads intrigues me. Like his next drama by the French-Liberian director Jean-Stephane Sauvaire, who’s last film, Johnny Mad Dog, is about Congolese child soldiers. This one will be filmed entirely in Iraq. We leave next month. Perhaps there, the bullets whistling by, or at least the possibility that a bullet could whistle by, will cause me to throb.

Rob Pattinson talks about Eric Maddox and going to Iraq

Mission: Blacklist France talked to Rob at the Cosmopolis Berlin premiere and asked about the movie. Here's the audio:

And the transcript:

Question: Hi! One of your next projects is Mission:Blacklist. What made you choose this role and are you really going to scout locations in Iraq?
Robert Pattinson: I read the script. I thought the script…I didn’t even realize that the script was a real story and then they told me it was a true story. I met Eric Maddox who it’s based on. He’s one of the most fascinating people I have ever met and the story’s amazing. We’re looking into Iraq, I mean he was there, I mean it’s quite difficult obviously to go there, but I think it would be a good thing to do to go and start… you know.
