Los Angeles - Robert Pattinson has joined the cast of Mission: Blacklist.

The British actor - best known for portraying vampire Edward Cullen in the vampire movie series Twilight - will take a leading role in the military thriller about the search for Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Jean Stephane Sauvaire will direct the movie, which is based on the novel Mission: Black List #1 by Eric Maddox and David Seay.

Cannes

Ross M Dinerstein, Erik Jendresen and Kevil Waller are to produce the picture.

Embankment Films will be attempting to sell the movie at the Cannes Film Festival.

Robert - who is currently back in Vancouver, Canada, to reshoot scenes for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 with girlfriend Kristen Stewart - recently starred in Bel Ami alongside Christina Ricci and Uma Thurman, and will next be seen in Cosmopolis.

It is believed Robert will have to wear a wig for his new Twilight scenes because he recently shaved his head.

A source said: "The wig looks brilliant and nobody will notice. Robert didn't think cutting off his locks would be such a big deal."
