Robert Pattinson will introduce Jude Law to the Queen of the Desert
In a post-Twilight world, one of the keys to Robert Pattinson‘s success is going to be surrounding himself with talented directors and talented actors in quality roles. Back in August, we told you that Robert Pattinson would be taking a starring role in QUEEN OF THE DESERT and today we get word that he’ll be joined by Jude Law. Law hasn’t been able to find the A-list success we all thought he would after THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, but he’s still an extremely talented actor and should bolster the already impressive cast.
Directed and written by Werner Herzog, QUEEN OF THE DESERT follows the true story of Gertrude Bell (to be played by Naomi Watts), a political ambassador for Britain who was known for her travels, writing, exploration and cartography. Robert Pattinson will play T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) who helped Bell establish the Hashemite dynasties in Iraq and Jordan. Production for QUEEN OFTHE DESERT should start this fall. There’s no word yet as to who Jude Law will play, but his addition to the cast makes us even more excited to see what Warner Herzog has in store for us. (Deadline)
