British actor Robert Pattinson has signed up to star in a new movie detailing the capture of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

The Twilight star will appear in new thriller Mission: Blacklist, which has been adapted from the novel Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein by real-life military interrogator Eric Maddox, who helped in the search for Hussein, who was captured in 2003 and executed in 2006.

The film will be directed by Jean-Stephane Sauvaire and is to be touted at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in France this month.
