Jude Law joins Rob in ‘Queen of the Desert’   3 comments

From THR

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.

  1. Aaaaaah Robert AND Jude Law in the same movie !?! *fanning myself* Not to think that eventually, we should have Robert and Viggo in a Cronenberg movie… sometimes Life is really sweet 😀

  2. I hope it will not be in limited release, like the others have been. (Cosmopolis and Bel Ami). I do not understand why it’s all over Europe and everywhere else and limited in the US. I know all over the US there are Rob fans, why not capitalize on that and let the fans see their favorite man and the studios make more money. Makes no sense to me. I am a business person, as well as a business professor, and I still do not understand the distributer’s reasoning on this. Can anyone explain it to me?

    • Yes I agree, I live in Montréal (Canada) and we had limited Cosmopolis showing and no Bel Ami at all 😦 And here we see movies from all around the world. So it is kind of a “mystery”…
