Jude Law will join Naomi Watts and Robert Pattinson in Werner Herzog’s period drama “Queen of the Desert”.
Watts plays explorer, writer, archeologist, and British attache Gertrude Bell who is credited with helping to catalyze the formation of the Middle East at the dawn of the 20th century.
Pattinson is already onboard to play T.E. Lawrence, Law’s role isn’t specified but could be Charles Doughty-Wylie with whom Bell had an unconsummated affair.
Shooting kicks off in Morocco in March 2013.
