'Mission: Blackilist' Update: New Director, Script Rewrite, Filming Schedule

Deadline confirms what we reported a few weeks ago on twitter, is the new director of 'Mission: Blacklist'. According to the article, filming is schedule to the fall

From Deadline
The Swedish invasion into Hollywood continues. Jesper Ganslandt has been tapped to direct Robert Pattinson in the psychological thriller Mission: Blacklist, about a brilliant young military interrogator who spearheads the capture of Saddam Hussein. Pic is based on the life of soldier-turned-intelligence agent Eric Maddox, who funneled his experiences into the 2008 nonfic book Mission: Black List #1 – The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein – As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. The Code Entertainment project was first announced last year in Cannes back when Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire was set to direct. Following Sauvaire’s departure Ganslandt stepped in and will make his English-language debut after directing three features, Blondie, The Ape, and Falkenberg Farewell, in his native Sweden. Filming is scheduled for the fall.

The script is by Band of Brothers scribe Erik Jendressen, Dylan Kussman, and Trace Sheehan. Ross M. Dinerstein of Preferred Content is producing alongside Jendressen and Kevin Waller, with Code Entertainment producing and financing the project. Jesper is repped by Paradigm and Magnolia.

Dylan Kussman, 'Mission: Blacklist' screenwriter, that first shared the news about Ganslandt, tweeted today a few updates about the script and shooting locations:

Fantastic update, I was worried this production would stall with the problems with location, but so relieved that it seems to be on track now and excited to see this director's vision of the book and Rob's character. Now when will Hold on to Me be filmed, I want to see Rob with Carey so bad. Hi RPLifers and the usual band of sisters, twilghtnan, LisaCT,No One Special, Nimet, Haxy and etc. Hope you are having fun regaling in all the recent Rob pics. He is looking fine like a very fine wine.
