Robs next movie-role - Lawrence of Arabia!

This has been now confirmed by Gossip Cop (YAY!) who also reveal that production is due to start in late fall! :)

*Original Post*
According to Variety, Robert Pattinson is attached to play a young Lawrence of Arabia opposite Naomi Watts in the film "Queen of the Desert".

Rob at the Cosmopolis Premiere last night.
Just days before "Cosmopolis" opens in limited release, star Robert Pattinson has joined the cast of Werner Herzog's indie "Queen of the Desert," which will star Naomi Watts as English writer Gertrude Bell.
Pic will chronicle Bell's life as a writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer and political attache for the British Empire. One of the first women to graduate from Oxford at the turn of the 20th century, she traveled through the Middle East, defining the borders of Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Pattinson is attached to play T.E. Lawrence, a British Army officer whose writing earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, on whom David Lean's classic 1962 epic is based. Lawrence was a good friend to Bell over the years, as the duo helped establish the Hashemite dynasties in Jordan and Iraq.

Cassian Elwes and Nick Raslan (Herzog's "Rescue Dawn") are producing the pic, which is aiming to start production in late fall.

Outside of the "Twilight" franchise that catapulted him to fame, Pattinson has avoided blockbusters to work on challenging indie projects with acclaimed directors. After wrapping Francis Lawrence's adaptation of "Water for Elephants" and the lusty period pic "Bel Ami," Pattinson chose to work with David Cronenberg on "Cosmopolis," which opens Friday. Thesp is set to star opposite Guy Pearce in David Michod's Aussie drama "The Rover," as well as the indie thriller "Mission: Blacklist," which chronicles the hunt for Saddam Hussein.

Robert Pattinson's interview with Jon Stewart aired in the US last night.
There was Ben & Jerry's ice-cream, and he kinda-sorta spoke about Kristen in it - or rather just smiled and laughed when Jon mentioned it - but overall he did well and my goodness doesn't he look well!!!
You can catch his interview tonight at 10:30PM on "Comedy Central Extra" (If you have it) or CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD it.

What did you think of the interview? Are you proud?
