Werner Herzog Talks About Rob and ‘Queen of the Desert’   1 comment

Werner_HerzogTranslation

Playboy: For your next film ‘Queen of the Desert’ you have cast ‘Twilight’ teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson.
Herzog:
 He approached me. That is why I am taken seriously in Hollywood. Because so many good actors want to work with me. Nicolas Cage was never better than in ‘Bad Lieutenant’.

Playboy: What do you see in Robert Pattinson?
Herzog:
 He has charisma, he is smart, he writes. I hope we will see him one day as a director. ‘Queen of the Desert’ is not yet fully funded, and we don’t know yet where we will shoot. Possibly, that should be in Syria.

Robert Pattinson talks about ‘Queen of the Desert’ with Indiewire   1 comment

From Indiewire

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.”
