Sarà Damian Lewis, l’attore inglese di Homeland, il protagonista del nuovo film di Werner Herzog, dedicato a Gertrude Bell, Queen of the Desert.
Affiancherà Nicole Kidman, nei panni della protagonista e forse Robert Pattinson in quelli di T.E. Lawrence.
The true story drama will follow Gertrude Bell, the traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century who played a crucial role in the development of the Middle East as we know it. Lewis will play Lieutenant Colonel Charles Doughty-Wylie who has an affair with Bell.
