The Hollywood Reporter

“The brief but significant appearances of Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence aside…”


“Among the more entertaining interludes is her time spent at an archeological dig with Lawrence. And while Pattinson in Arab headgear takes some getting used to (and drew laughs at the Berlin press screening), the easy camaraderie in his scenes with Kidman is appealing. ”

‘LIFE’ and ‘Queen of the Desert’ on various ‘Most Anticipated Movies of 2015’ lists


The Film Stage – LIFE

After premiering his latest drama, A Most Wanted Man, at Sundance last year, we thought director Anton Corbijn might return to Park City, but barring any last-minute announcements that looks to not be the case. Hopefully coming later this year, as scripted by Luke DaviesLife centers on the relationship between James Dean (Dane DeHaan) and Life Magazine‘s Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson), the latter of whom had been tasked with capturing the up-and-coming actor less than a year before his rise to stardom and tragic death. –Jordan R.

The Film Stage – Queen of the Desert

With rumors that it would arrive last year, the wait continues for Werner Herzog’s first narrative feature in half-a-decade, the story of legendary cartographer Gertrude Bell may be hitting theaters this year. Led by Nicole KidmanRobert Pattinson, James Franco, and Damian Lewis, Queen of the Desert follows Bell, a diplomatic explorer, who negotiated with Arab nations and helped establish the countries of Iraq and Jordan. Considering that Herzog is the man who gave us such epics as Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre, we’re looking forward to a return with what looks to be his most visually ambitious work in some time. With fall line-ups getting announced shortly, check back for updates. – Jordan R.

Director Werner Herzog mentions Robert Pattinson in an interview   2 comments

Werner Herzog, Director of ‘Queen of the Desert’, talks vampire movies and mentions Robert Pattinson in his interview with The Playlist.


From The Playlist

Herzog claims that cinema has “a very unique way” of dealing with the vampire myth, and while his high esteem for Kinski’s legacy has barred him from considering most future iterations, a surprising exception is the “Twilight” series of films. His reaction? “Not that bad, I was surprised to find.”

“We have to take it seriously that there are films out there that know how to address a 14 or 15-year-old,” he added. “This is a very special sort of approach and I couldn’t do it, yet these films could. I see that much of it is silly but at the same time I respect these films. And I just worked with one of the actors, Robert Pattinson [in Herzog’s upcoming ‘Queen of the Desert’], and he’s a wonderful, fine actor. He’s clearly stepping out of these roles that make the teenies screech.”

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


Playboy: For your next film ‘Queen of the Desert’ you have cast ‘Twilight’ teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson.
 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?
 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.

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.

Robert Pattinson To Shoot Queen of the Desert in Jordan and England in the Fall   4 comments

 Robert Pattinson to shoot in Jordan and England for Queen of the Desert 

From THR 

Robert Pattinson is attached to play Lawrence of Arabia in Queen of the Desert, Werner Herzog’s biopic of Gertrude Bell.

Naomi Watts is starring as Bell described as the female Lawrence of Arabia for the impact the English woman had in the Middle East and her work in establishing what would become the modern framework for Jordan and Iraq. She was an explorer, writer, archeologist and political attache and during World War I, worked for British Intelligence.

Pattinson will play T.E. Lawrence, the archeologist-turned-British Army officer who played key roles in Middle Eastern revolutions in the same time period and became close friends with Bell. Peter O’Toole portrayed the explorer in the 1962 classic.

Herzog wrote the screenplay. Nick Raslan is producing with Cassian Elwes.

A fall shoot in Jordan and England is being eyed.

The move keeps Pattinson firmly in the world of independent film. One of the world’s most recognizable stars, the actor is this week promoting Cosmopolis, his drama directed by David Cronenberg. He is set to star with Guy Pearce in the post-apocalyptic indie The Rover as well as Mission: Blacklist, an indie thriller about Saddam Hussein’s capture.

According to Premiere Editor in Chief, @mat_carrat, Robert Pattinson Working With Werner Herzog On a Movie   3 comments

According to the Editor in Chief of Premiere, Mathieu Carratier,  Robert Pattinson is working with Werner Herzog on a movie. Premiere is a very reputable magazine. 


“Okay, some real info then: Robert Pattinson is working on a movie with Werner Herzog. “


“Since it seems to interest you guys, I can also tell you that Robert Pattinson is spending time with Harmony Korine at the moment. “


“Since you insist: Pattinson could work with Cronenberg again in an “incredibly” dark movie on ex child stars. 


“Pattinson also tried to convince Jeff Nichols to make the role in Mud younger so he could play the role. Matthew McConaughey finally played the part.”
