Robert Pattinson signs on to play 'Lawrence of Arabia'

Robert Pattinson has some big shoes to fill.  Specifically, those of Peter O' Toole's timeless classic, 'Lawrence of Arabia'.  Pattinson has signed on to play the iconic character in 'The Queen of the Desert', where Naomi Watts will co-star as Gertrude Stein, which Werner Herzog has been prepping for a while.
 
 
Slash Film is reporting that "Pattinson has been attached to play T.E. Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia, in Herzog’s film. Lawrence was a colleague and friend to Bell, and casting Pattinson suggests that he’ll figure prominently in Herzog’s take on Bell’s history.
 
"Variety says that the film aims to shoot late this fall, which would bring to fruition the plan Herzog has discussed since 2010. He originally described the film as “a big epic film set in the desert,” and we don’t have much more from Herzog than that. But his long-standing interest in chronicling important historical figures who aren’t exactly household names leads to some high hopes for this film. (Bell will be perhaps one of Herzog’s best-known subjects, but I imagine most of the details of her life won’t be known to the film’s broad audience.)"
 
 
It seems like Pattinson is suddenly booking everything – no doubt, this is in part attributed to his ‘sympathy quotient’ going up through the roof in Hollywood.  All the industry executives want to capitalize in the massive rise in goodwill towards him, especially as he seems to be handling the aftermath of his girlfriend cheating on him with such grace and humor.  Pattinson is also confirmed to star in ‘The Rover’ with Guy Pearce, something was greenlit seemingly in the wake of his sudden rise in popularity.  He’s also confirmed to star in ‘Mission Blacklist’, which may be his biggest role to date. Similar to ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and the ‘Hurt Locker’ is the word on the script, but if Pattinson pulls it off, it could just lend him an Oscar nomination.
 
But first, we’ll have to see if he can pull of Lawrence of Arabia.  He is renowned company, as others actors that have starred as this character in addition to Peter O’Toole are Ian McKellen and Ralph Fiennes.
