Robert Pattinson cast as Lawrence of Arabia in 'Queen of the Desert' - report
Pattinson will reportedly play T.E. Lawrence, a British Army officer and writer better known as Lawrence of Arabia. Lawrence and Bell were friends who together established the Hashemite dynasties in Jordan and Iraq.
According to the report, the film is aiming to start production in late fall. Also coming around that time for Pattinson will be the release -- and all the associated promotion hoopla -- of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."
