Robert Pattinson begins filming ‘Queen of the Desert’ in Morocco next month


Production on Werner Herzog’s next project, Queen of the Desert, began in Morocco this week but the main cast won’t start shooting until January.

The movie follows the life of Gertrude Bell, “a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century.”

Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson, and Damian Lewis are set to star.

Lewis recently discussed the project with Entertainment Weekly, saying, “I’m about to go work with Werner Herzog, [the film] Queen of the Desert, with Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson and myself. We’re going to shoot that in Morocco in January.”

Queen of the Desert will hit theaters in 2015.


  1. this is one movie i am looking forward to. what great cast,great and interesting director. and what a story. love the places the director picked to film this movie. Maybe the cast will meet the kiing and queen of jordon if they film their. I cannot wait to see actor robert pattinson play
    the role of a young Lawrence. Robert Pattinson will do the role justice, knowing that the great
    Peter Otoole played the same man but at a later stage in his life. Wishing the entire cast success in making this film.
