First Look: Nicole Kidman & James Franco In Werner Herzog’s ‘Queen Of The Desert’

First Look: Nicole Kidman & James Franco In Werner Herzog's 'Queen Of The Desert'

Earlier today, Werner Herzog fans got a dose of good news when it was revealed that his latest, “Queen Of The Desert,” will make its debut at the Berlin International Film Festival. And now, we’ve got the first image from the film.

Starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson, Damian Lewis, and many more, the biopic tells the tale of Gertrude Bell, the traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the 20th century who played a crucial role in the development of the Middle East. And Herzog has been making some big teases about the picture.

“Now, Nicole Kidman,” Herzog said last summer. “Wait for that one. Wait for it. I make an ominous prediction: How good she is.” We’ll soon find out.

No distribution yet for the movie, but if the film is even half as good as our expectations, it shouldn’t be too long. [via Queen Of The Desert fansite]
