Rob mentions Mission: Blacklist during Cosmopolis US promo

Rob talks about Mission: Blacklist with Josh Horowitz on MTV First:

He says the director is in Iraq right now and is sending him pictures of possible locations. Rob knows it's difficult to shoot there and confirms that filming will start next year.



In an interview with TIME Rob says they are going to shoot Mission: Blacklist in Iraq next summer.

Here's an excerpt:
I’m going to make this movie [Mission: Blacklist] about Eric Maddox, an Army interrogator who was one of the major people responsible for finding Saddam Hussein. He was working with JSOC [Joint Special Operations Command], which isn’t supposed to exist, and they found Saddam Hussein by themselves but they couldn’t say it was them. The story is crazy, absolutely bizarre. It’s a really cool director called Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire. We’re going to shoot in Iraq next summer. In January I’m doing this other movie [The Rover] with David Micôd, who did the Australian movie Animal Kingdom—a futuristic western with Guy Pearce.
