Werner Herzog spoke to Bande à Part and Les Inrocks about Queen of the Desert. The interviews are translated but visit the links if you understand French.

Translation by PAW from Bande à Part:

Can you tell us more about your next movie ‘Queen Of The Desert’?
In less than ten days, I will start the mixing. The filming and editing are completed and I should be able to put an end to the movie in the first days of december.I don’t know where or when it will be shown for the first time.

The cast is really impressive: Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson…
They all really wanted to work with me. I was asked why I chose Pattinson. It’s not a big part, and it matched perfectly. I needed an englishman who still looks like a schoolboy but which is very smart. He plays Lawrence of Arabia, but at the age of 22, on an archeological site. Kidman, who plays the main role is wondering what that kid has to do in a place like this, and an archeologist tells her that this kid has a PhD.Pattinson is really good in that role. He is a smart man and the choice was quite natural.

Translated excerpt from Les Inrocks:

Les Inrocks: You just finished Queen of the Desert, a blockbuster […] with Robert Pattinson as Lawrence of Arabia, aka TE Lawrence …

Werner Herzog: Lawrence is a supporting character. He meets the main character in my film, Gertrude Bell, an adventurous geographer of the early twentieth century performed by Nicole Kidman. This is an epic film with much happening in the Arabian desert. But for practical reasons, we filmed in Morocco, near the Algerian border.

While promoting her next film, Paddington, Nicole Kidman mentioned what fun it was to work with Werner Herzog on Queen of the Desert.

Excerpt from The Guardian:

The Oscar-winning actor is set for a busy 2015, starring opposite Robert Pattinson in Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert and opposite Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes in the Sundance-bound Strangerland, by Australian director Kim Farrant in her feature debut.

“I like working with auteurs,” Kidman said of Herzog. “I wanted to have an adventure. And of all the people to have an adventure with Werner is pretty fun. It’s like entering into Wernerworld.”
