The real T.E. Lawrence
Queen of the Desert of course will have its own story to tell, but this is what we know so far (via The Playlist):
The film will tell the true story of Gertrude Bell (Naomi Watts), the traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century. So who will Pattinson play? Only one of the most important figures in recent history, T.E. Lawrence aka Lawrence Of Arabia, who worked with Bell to establish the Hashemite dynasties in Jordan and Iraq.
We'll be following the latest as production gets going, keeping you updated on everything about the film. So excited to see Rob in this role!
