"Homeland" star Damian Lewis is set to join Nicole Kidman in Queen of the Desert, the upcoming period drama written and directed by Werner Herzog.

The film stars Kidman as Gertrude Bell, an explorer, writer, archeologist and attach for the British Empire, who is credited with helping to catalyze the formation of the Middle East at the dawn of the 20th century.

Although production was originally aiming for earlier this year with both James Franco and Robert Pattinson attached to star, the film is now looking to lens in December in Morocco.

Nick Raslan will produce via his Palmyra Films banner along with Cassian Elwes and Michael Benaroya. Benaroya's Benaroya Pictures banner will finance the film.
