Jude Law has officially joined Naomi Watts and Robert Pattinson in Queen of the Desert, the upcoming period drama written and directed by Werner Herzog.

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

"It is great to be working with Herzog again on this epic story as Ms. Bell been called the female 'Lawrence of Arabia,'" said Nick Raslan.

Nick Meyer, Sierra/Affinity's CEO, added, "It is a great opportunity to be working with such acclaimed talent on such an important project. We look forward to seeing Werner Herzog make this exciting piece of history come alive for a global audience."

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. Sierra/Affinity will handle international sales and will make it available to buyers during this year's American Film Market.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin in Morocco in March 2013.
