How do you assess the creative power of the teen star Robert Pattinson, with whom you will work soon?
He’s a really intelligent person. Writes well. Knows exactly what he’s doing. He also knows that he has to escape the short-lived teen star phase.
I also noticed on the always accurate IMDB that you are doing Dom Hemingway and Queen of the Desert.
Law: No, Queen of the Dessert, I don’t think is going to happen now, or I don’t think that I can be involved in it anymore. I’m not sure what happened there, whether they can get it together I don’t know.
From The Playlist
As for projects that may or may not be happening, Law confirmed Naomi Watts’ statement that Werner Herzog’s Gertrude Bell biopic “Queen of the Desert” is now on hold and he will likely be no longer be available for it when it returns. ”I don’t think that’s happening. I don’t think I can do that anymore,” he admitted.
Naomi Watts who said that, when the shooting of this biopic about Gertrude Bell should start in March.
With a casting including Robert Pattinson as Lawrence of Arabia, Naomi Watts as Gertrude Bell and Jude Law in a undetermined role, QUEEN OF THE DESERT was likely to catch our intention , our curiosity andour impatience . Especially since the director is Werner Herzog. One of the greatest director of our time who, for the previous years, was more busy doing his excellent documentaries than shooting his movies.So to see him going back to shoot feature films , four years after My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done ( never released in France) and three years after the crazy Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, was a real delight.
However QUEEN OF THE DESERT won’t finally be shot very soon, even if the first steps of the cinematography should have started in March . It’s Naomi Watts who revealed those discouraging news about the project, first when she declared to E ! Online : « It’s still a way’s off. I don’t know yet. Hopefully, it will happen. I just can’t travel again right now because I did a lot of traveling last year. It’s been a big year and it’s time for me to be home with the kids.“ » She also told MTV (via The Playlist), while promoting TWO MOTHERS at Sundance film festival “we’ll see if it happens later this year or next year “. Moreover, she assesses that Robert Pattinson wouldn’t be 100% confirmed for the casting…
We’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope everything’ll be fine. Don’t forget QUEEN OF THE DESERT is about the work of both Lawrence and Bell at the beginning of the 20th century to reinforce Hachemites’ power in Jordan and Irak. They did it in order to help the French and English interests against the Ottoman Empire in this area.

Here’s a video of Naomi Watts speaking about Robert Pattinson and Queen of the Desert.
Robert Pattinson and Naomi Watts will not be coming to theater near you anytime soon.
At least not together, that is. The two are signed to costar along with Jude Law in a Queen of the Desert, a period piece about British writer, traveler, archeologist and spy Gertrude Bell. “It’s still a way’s off,” Watts told me last night at the Luminara and Mulberry Project dinner for her Sundance Film Festival movie, Two Mothers. “I don’t know yet. Hopefully, it will happen. I just can’t travel again right now because I did a lot of traveling last year. It’s been a big year and it’s time for me to be home with the kids.”
‘Map to the Stars’ & ‘Queen of the Desert’ on Indiewire’s ‘The 50 Indie Films we want to see in 2013′
With the avalanche of 2012 Top Ten lists petering out and the Sundance Film Festival a mere two weeks away from introducing what could be this year’s “Beasts of the Southern Wild” or “Sleepwalk With Me,” it’s time to stop reflecting on the past year’s cinema and start getting excited about this one’s. Because if the 50 films most anticipated by Indiewire’s editors listed below are any indication, it looks like a very promising year ahead.
From the work of Steve McQueen, Lars Von Trier and Sofia Coppola to the inspirations of Julian Assange, Linda Lovelace and David Sedaris (not to mention double doses of on-screen magic from Tilda Swinton and Ryan Gosling), here are 50 films likely to be released in 2013 that Indiewire’s staff are most excited to see:
“Map to the Stars”
Director: David Cronenberg
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Rachel Weisz, Robert Pattinson
Distributor: None as of yet.
Release Date: Very likely to premiere in Cannes or Venice or Toronto, with a deal and release date to follow.
Why Might It Be a Must See: Whatever you think of Robert Pattison becoming David Cronenberg’s newfound muse, their second collaboration in as many years looks mighty appealing. The long-delayed “Map to The Stars” also brings Cronenberg’s other righthand man Viggo Mortensen along for the ride (as well as Rachel Weisz), and is said to be a complex Hollywood satire… It’s also the first film the Canadian director has actually shot in America.

“Queen of the Desert”
Director: Werner Herzog
Cast: Naomi Watts, Robert Pattinson, Jude Law
Release date: Nothing yet.
Why Might It Be a Must See: Just because he was recently seen onscreen as the villain in “Jack Reacher” doesn’t mean Herzog has sold out. Every since “Rescue Dawn,” the kooky Bavarian filmmaker has entered a compelling new stage with the narrative side of his filmmaking career, delivering bizarre, discursive dramas (can anyone really explain “My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?”) with the same loony poetry that often spills out of Herzog’s mouth (that iguana bit in “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” was something else). Herzog’s new movie looks like a consolidation of his life as an adventurous documentarian and oddball fiction work: The movie stars Watts as legendary explorer Gertrude Bell and Pattinson as “Lawrence of Arabia” author T.E. Lawrence. Herzog tends to bring out the maniacal side of his actors, which means this could be a thrill ride in more ways than one. [Eric Kohn]
Rob Pattinson changed out of his green suit before coming to the party with wearing a more casual red sweater and baseball cap, saying he has three movies to shoot before he even gets to “Queen of the Desert,” in which he plays T.E. Lawrence opposite Naomi Watts’ Gertude Bell. “I wanted to work with Werner Herzog,” he told me. He has no idea if he’ll go blond to play Lawrence fo Arabia. And the role is being expanded for him. First he has to get through David Michod’s “The Rover.”
He’ll star opposite Naomi Watts and Robert Pattinson in the biopic of Gertrude Bell, described as the female Lawrence of Arabia.Adding another title to its arsenal, Sierra/Affinity will represent foreign rights to Werner Herzog’s historical Gertrude Bell biopic Queen of the Desert.
Judd Law is joining the cast of the film, which headlines Naomi Watts as Bell and Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence, otherwise known as Lawrence of Arabia.
Bell — like Lawrence — was an explorer, writer, archeologist and attaché for the British Empire, who is credited with helping to catalyze the formation of the Middle East at the dawn of the 20th century. She’s often been referred to as the “female” Lawrence of Arabia.
Nick Raslan is producing via his Palmyra Films banner along with Cassian Elwes and Michael Benaroya. Benaroya’s Benaroya Pictures banner will finance the film.
Sierra/Affinity will handle international sales and will make it available to buyers during this year’s American Film Market.
“It is a great opportunity to be working with such acclaimed talent on such an important project. We look forward to seeing Werner Herzog make this exciting piece of history come alive for a global audience,” Sierra/Affinity CEO Jude Law said.
Principal photography is scheduled to begin in Morocco in March 2013.
