Werner Herzog's Queen of the Desert — a biopic about English writer Gertrude Bell — just got added another beautiful British face to the growing A-list cast.
Jude Law will be joining Robert Pattinson and Naomi Watts in the drama that chronicles Bell's life as a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century.
At this point, we don't know what role we'll see Law in and if any other big names will climb aboard. Based on who is involved so far though, we wouldn't be surprised to see more major stars get cast before the film is shot in Morocco this March.

Angelina Jolie may be moving into behind-the-camera work, but she has reportedly in talks to go back to acting for a currently untitled, big-scale movie by Transporter and Taken director Luc Besson!
According to sources, the project is a dramatic thriller rooted in true scientific elements, and the actress will begin production on it in the spring if all goes as planned!
Between this and Gertrude Bell - on which she'll reportedly begin work upon the Besson project's completion - she's certainly keeping herself busy!
Not that we're complaining!
We love our Angie on the big screen!
