Eric Maddox talks about Mission: Blacklist and Rob

Eric Maddox - interrogator, author and OU alumnus explained the process of finding and capturing Saddam Hussein and detailed the dilemmas he faced to about 300 people in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Molly Shi Boren Ballroom.


This same story is encapsulated in his book, “Mission: Blacklist #1,” on which a movie will be based starring Robert Pattinson, who will play Maddox.

“Somebody wants to make a movie about my story - it’s very exciting,” Maddox said.

Maddox said he has already met and gotten to know Pattinson.

“He’s a great guy,” Maddox said. “When they brought his name up to me, I had never heard of him before. I don’t believe in vampire movies and stories. I just didn’t know who he was.”

Maddox said he wore a single blue shirt for months in his search for Hussein, with no other changes of clothes. The shirt has a bigmouth bass embossed on it, Velcro pockets and bloodstains.

“I’ve still got it [the shirt.] I think Rob is gonna wear it in the movie,” Maddox said.

Maddox had to wait five years to tell his story and write the book due to the U.S. government preferring to keep it classified, he said.

“Since then, the United States government wanted me to endorse the movie, and wanted me to say who I am and what I do,” he said.

Sweet Story About How Rob Saved The Alligator From His Vanity Fair Photoshoot

Remember the alligator on the cover of Vanity Fair with Rob? Here is the story of how Rob helped free Hollywood.

“Just thought I would share the rest of the story with you all… Well, we all know this picture right? I was visiting Insta-gator in Louisiana last weekend with some fellow twilighters and happened to spot it on the wall. I raced over to it and, although the pic doesn’t show it clearly, the paper above the pic says that the alligator, appropriately named, Hollywood, lives at the ranch and that if you ask the tour guide, you can meet him!!!! I immediately went into stealth mode knocking people over trying to find the guide because anything that touched Rob, I MUST TOUCH! Anyway, finally found the guide, who we had nicknamed Marshmallow Man, because he fed the gators marshmallows and because he was hot, and he acted like he didn’t know what I was talking about, all braun, no brains, I guess. He told us to go ask the short, red-headed guy. So I did, and do you know what he told me? He said, “Hollywood’s not here anymore. Rob paid to have him released back into the wild. It’s the only time we’ve ever done that.” Needless to say, tears started to form, not because I didn’t get to meet the gator, but because our Rob is that sweet! I cried and love him even more if that’s possible! And that my friends, is the rest of the story.”

Here's the video of Hollywood getting released

David Michôd Mentions Rob and The Rover in Who Magazine

With his buzz cut, bloodied face and bad teeth, Robert Pattinson's latest style is a far cry from his Twilight character Edward Cullen.

The change is for new Australian film The Rover, which Pattinson, 26, is filming in South Australia. "He's very smart," director David Michôd told WHO, adding that it's a long way from Hollywood. "It's been one of the beaut experiences - to roam around and breath fresh air, but the flies are driving him crazy."

Stephenie Meyer Talks About Her First Meeting With Rob

For starters, we asked Stephenie her standout memories of the “Twilight” cast. “One of the first is when I first visited the set and I went out to dinner,” she began. “I hadn’t met anyone in the cast. They were coming from dinner and they were delayed. They came straight from a gallery shoot where they were all in character costume, make-up… the whole bit. So the first time I met them, they were dressed up like my imaginary friends. That’s not something you get every day.”


Stephenie again laughed heartily as she recalled her unforgettable first meeting with Robert Pattinson. “When Rob and I first met, we had lunch together [and] talked about the script. We sat there and argued for a solid hour and a half about the Edward character. And he was really sure I was wrong [in parts]. I was telling him, ‘This is how Edward feels…’ He said, ‘No, this is how he feels here.’ We went back and forth [that way]. It was hilarious and fun.”

Max Irons Talks Robert Pattinson Comparisons

Around the 1:00 mark

"I can probably name 10 actors who've been compared to Robert Pattinson," Irons said at the film's Hollywood premiere. "So it's an honor -- I think he's doing very well for himself, he's got some amazing projects coming out -- so it's a bit of an honor, but I think everyone's an individual. But it's nice to be likened to him."

As for the notion that all up-and-coming British actors in Hollywood hang out together, he joked, "We do. England's a very small country. We all live together. We all know each other. We all know the Queen."

New Picture + Rob and David Michôd Talk About The Rover

From The Sunday Morning Herald:
'It's very odd,'' Robert Pattinson says. ''There's something strange and disturbing about the whole relationship.''

The Twilight actor is talking about the two characters at the heart of his new film, The Rover, which finished shooting on Saturday in outback South Australia.

He plays a young man, Rey, caught up in an uneasy, dangerous alliance with a stranger, Eric (Guy Pearce), in a not-too-distant future.

The Rover is the much-anticipated new film from David Michod, the writer-director of Animal Kingdom. The title refers to Pearce's character: damaged, solitary, utterly without hope.

Pattinson has been casting his net widely since his lead role in the wildly successful Twilight movies brought him celebrity and a certain amount of paparazzi attention. He's quick and sometimes self-deprecating, and has a surprisingly hearty laugh. Looking for roles post-Twilight, he says, ''I don't know if I'm necessarily any good at sculpting a career or anything. But I know what I want to do.''

He wanted to be part of The Rover because ''it was an original script and it was one of those parts where you read it and you think, 'I'd love to do this, but I know I'm never going to get it.'''. There, ''already self-defeating before I've even started'', he says.

In this film, he's a long way from the debonair 19th-century Frenchman of Bel Ami or the New York billionaire of Cosmopolis, two of his recent roles. The near-future that Rey inhabits has a broken-down, improvised, desperate feel, and Pattinson's appearance is in keeping: unkempt and unshaven, with make-up that discolours his teeth.

Rey is an American who has come to Australia with his brother. He is, Pattinson says, ''the kind of person who has been brought up to believe they're incapable of living independently. Someone has always been looking after him.'' When he's separated from his brother, ''almost the first person that comes along, he grabs them. It doesn't matter how he gets treated''. And Eric treats him very badly at first.

The Rover was shot over seven weeks, ending with more than a fortnight in the remote small town of Marree, 685 kilometres north of Adelaide, whose population of 90 more than doubled with the presence of the movie crew. Almost every part of Marree has been incorporated into the world of the movie. The filmmakers said it felt like their own Hollywood studio backlot.

The Rover takes place ''in an unspecified relatively near future, after a number of years of quite seriously steady Western economic decline,'' Michod says. ''It's not post-apocalypse. This is an Australia that has broken down into a kind of resource-rich Third World country.''

He did not start with the idea of this near-future, but with the enigmatic, shifting relationship between the two central characters. He wrote the role of Eric for Pearce, but did not start thinking about Pattinson until they met in Los Angeles.
He had not - and still has not - seen any of the Twilight films, but had been told that Pattinson was interesting. He found Pattinson was ''really smart, and not the sort of pretty boy I was expecting. As soon as it was time to start testing… he was my first choice, by a long way.''

From The Daily Telegraph:
Edward Cullen wouldn't last five minutes in the baking heat of Marree, a one-pub town 650km north of Adelaide.

But Robert Pattinson has channelled the physical discomfort of his seven-week summer shoot in the middle of the Aussie Outback into a character he hopes will make an equally indelible impression as the Twilight vampire.

"It's added lots to the performance - being covered in dirt, pouring sweat, with tons of flies around. You lose your inhibitions quite quickly," the English star said on the set of his latest film, The Rover, in which he sports a crude DIY haircut and badly-decayed teeth.

A neo-western set in a brutal, anarchic near future, the $12 million film is director David Michod's hotly anticipated follow-up to the internationally acclaimed Animal Kingdom.

Guy Pearce plays the title character, an embittered outsider with whom Pattinson's naive victim forms an uneasy alliance.

Marree, population 90, is about as far from Hollywood as an actor can get.

"That's good in some ways," Pattinson says. "You definitely end up making a different movie. Being in the desert has a funny effect. It does change you in a way."

Pattinson confirmed his participation in three upcoming projects: Werner Herzog's Queen of the Desert with Naomi Watts and Jude Law; Maps to the Stars, a comedy directed by David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis); and Hold Onto Into Me with Carey Mulligan.

Some more new quotes from Courier Mail (the article is slightly different -the last part- from The Telegraph one)
Edward Cullen wouldn't last five minutes in the baking heat of Marree, a one-pub town 650km north of Adelaide.

But Robert Pattinson has channelled the physical discomfort of his seven-week, summer shoot in the middle of the Australian Outback into a character that he hopes will make an equally indelible impression as the Twilight vampire.

“It’s added lots to the performance – being covered in dirt, pouring sweat, with tons of flies around, you lose your inhibitions quite quickly,’’ the English star said on the set of his latest film, The Rover, in which he sports a crude, DIY haircut and badly-decayed teeth.

Guy Pearce plays the title character, an embittered outsider with whom Pattinson’s naive victim forms an uneasy alliance.

Located at the intersection of the Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks, Marree, population 90, is about far from Hollywood as an actor can get.

“That’s good in some ways,’’ says Pattinson. “You definitely end up making a different movie. Being in the desert has a funny effect. It does change you in a way.”

Pattinson, whose on-again, off-again relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart has been a matter of much conjecture, admits the different time zones and lack of mobile phone reception have taken a toll on his private life.

“Yeah, it’s tough. But at the end of the day, it’s only two months.”

Filming on The Rover, which has spent time on location in Hammond, Quorn, Copley, and Leigh Creek, wrapped yesterday.

Pattinson said he was intending to take the next three weeks off, but confirmed his participation in three upcoming projects: Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert, with Naomi Watts and Jude Law; Maps to the Stars, a comedy directed by David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis), and Hold Onto Into Me, with Carey Mulligan.

Stephenie Meyer Talks About Rob and Kristen

I begin to ask Meyer if she feels responsible for the barely imaginable level of scrutiny the actors have had to endure, but I get only as far as “Do you feel…”

“…guilt?” she interrupts. “Absolutely. Here’s the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it’s what they want. But that doesn’t apply to Kristen and Rob. That’s what makes it kind of ironic and tragic.”

Seeing that I’m taken aback by her choice of words, Meyer clarifies: “I just don’t think they enjoy the parts [of fame] that other people would. And I totally get that, because it would not be my thing either. At the same time – and this is where the guilt comes from – it’s created this nice, peaceful place for me. They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about. If they had the choice, I’ve no idea if they’d even do Twilight again. I just don’t know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.”

Meyer adds that she hasn’t seen either of them since the last Breaking Dawn premiere, and missed their company deeply on the set of The Host. Nevertheless, she hasn’t yet felt inspired to seek out any of Pattinson’s own writing, which includes a screen adaptation of the Martin Amis novel Money– about as far removed from Twilight as it is possible to get. “No, I haven’t read his script,” she admits, sheepishly, looking surprised that I know of its existence. “I’d be interested… and a little scared.”

'The Rover' Still Now HQ/Untagged + Comments from the Still Photographer

Now the picture is HQ/untagged and added comments from the photographer Matt Nettheim at the bottom of the post.

From his blog
Eventually work on the mainland beckoned so I loaded up my pushbike and trailer and headed back to Adelaide to join The Rover. Writer director David Michod had hit the jackpot with his debut feature Animal Kingdom, produced Porchlight Pictures, a regular client over my career. His Animal Kingdom cast had enjoyed massive career boosts from the films local and international acclaim, and everyone was waiting to see what David would do next. The production rolled into my hometown Adelaide, bringing with it actors Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, before heading off to shoot in the extremely remote and dangerously hot far north of South Australia. The prospect of working in that environment at this time of the year, with daily temperatures expected to be around 50 degrees, scared off many experienced local crew, but a brave crew was assembled and the film making road trip commenced.

First Official Still From 'The Rover'

ETA: Added bigger The Rover still - digital scan at the bottom of the post

Australia was founded as a repository for crooks and criminals — a wretched hive of scum and villainy, like the British Empire’s own Mos Eisley. Of course, that was a long time ago and the Australian national demeanor has since shifted from “kill or be killed” to “live and let live,” but David Michôd’s gritty 2010 drama Animal Kingdom chronicled some of the country’s more modern criminal descendents. In his upcoming sophomore effort, The Rover, the director takes things even further.

Robert Pattinson plays a denizen of the Outback in the near future, after a worldwide financial collapse has sent many like him running to the still viable mines of the Australian desert. “It’s like a new gold rush,” says Michôd. “Where people from all corners of the world have come out to the desert to scrape out an existence. Petty criminals and miscreants and hustlers.” Guy Pearce, who had an uncharacteristically reserved role in Animal Kingdom, gets to sink his teeth into a nicely nasty part opposite Pattinson. “The basic story is really quite elemental,” says Michôd. “You’ve got a really dark, dangerous, murderous person in Guy’s character, and in Rob’s character you have a quite troubled and damaged, but beautiful and naïve, soul.”

Of course, just by its setting and basic plot, The Rover is poised to draw comparisons to one of the antipodean country’s most memorable cinematic contributions. “You put cars in the desert in Australia and people are going to think of Mad Max,” says Michôd. “And with all due respect to that film — and I stress that — I think The Rover is going to be way more chillingly authentic and menacing.”

For more on The Rover and first looks at other upcoming projects, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands Friday.

Rachel Weisz No Longer in Maps To The Stars

Rachel Weisz talked about Maps To The Stars while promoting Oz The Great And Powerful.

From (click to read the full article)
Rachel also denied stories that she will be working with David Cronenberg in Maps To The Stars with Robert Pattinson and Viggo Mortensen.
"I'm not in that. I'm unemployed for now," she joked.

ETA: More about Rachel not doing the movie:

From Collider - Rachel talks about it at 2:53

And a few comments from The Playlist
Chatting recently with Collider (video above), when quickly asked at the end of the interview if she'd be doing Cronenberg's film, she said "I'm not," but wasn't able to elaborate further. The developing movie has Robert Pattinson and Viggo Mortensen slated to star in a Bruce Wagner, penned film that takes an acidic look at Hollywood. There was no word on her role, or even why she's bowing out, but we'd reckon scheduling might be an issue. While plans were underway to shoot in May, the director recently took a role in "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel "The Body Artist" which shoots this summer. Anyway, we'll see how it all shakes out, and if Cronenberg is still doing 'Stars' in late spring or if it has been pushed back.

MyAnna Buring, BD2 Co-Star, Talks About Rob

When Marie Claire met with Twilight and Downton Abbey star, MyAnna Buring we had to ask what she found most attractive about the British star. MyAnna told us: ‘Robert Pattinson was born beautiful, he was just one of the lucky ones.

Although she was quick to stress just how talented he was and that this can sometimes be overlooked.

‘Robert is a really great actor a lot of people forget that,’ MyAnna said. ‘To play dark and brooding and in lust and in love with someone is not that easy.’

And it’s something Robert Pattinson pulls off with aplomb when playing Edward Cullen – so much so we often got lost in his eye during the Twilight films.

After spending six months on location with Robert during the filming of Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2, MyAnna was in awe of the actor adding: ‘You get onto a set and realise how odd and awkward [playing someone in love] can be. But people like Rob make it very natural and easy. I think there’s something very attractive about that.’
