FESTIVAL BUZZ: The Hollywood Reporter calls Queen of the Desert a safe bet for Telluride + MORE

The Toronto International Film Festival and Venice Film Festival have made their main lineup announcements which has our sights set on another festival that is around the corner.

Telluride Film Festival takes place in Colorado from Aug. 28-Sept. 1. The festival doesn’t announce their lineup until the day before but The Hollywood Reporter, in a piece about the TIFF and Telluride drama, thinks you can put some money on Queen of the Desert showing up there:

It’s also a pretty safe bet that Werner Herzog, who has premiered dozens of films at Telluride, will debut his Queen of the Desert (still seeking a U.S. distributor) at the fest, as well.

Last year, the festival opened a new, 650-seat theater called the Werner Herzog Theater sooooooo….odds in our favor aren’t too shabby.

We’ll see how this plays out and keep our eyes on Telluride. A couple of tweets clued us in on current post work. The score began recording at Abbey Road Studios on July 22nd.

From July 15th

From July 21st

We can’t wait to hear the score and especially see the performances in Queen of the Desert. Werner Herzog, speaking to The Playlist, recently added to our anticipation when talking about Nicole Kidman:NicoleKidman

Playlist contributor James Rocchi spoke to Herzog last week and during a conversation about the acting powers of Klaus Kinski and Nicolas Cage, Herzog veered off to discuss how impressed he was with Kidman. “I think in all my films, the actors are at their best—and it includes Nicolas Cage in ‘Bad Lieutenant.’ I believe he is better than even in the part that won him an Academy Award,” Herzog said of Cage’s Best Actor win for “Leaving Las Vegas.”

“Now, Nicole Kidman,” Herzog said of her lead performance in “Queen Of The Desert.” “Wait for that one. Wait for it. I make an ominous prediction: How good she is.”

Herzog wasn’t shy about giving self-props to the environment he creates to assist the actor in giving their best performance possible. “I really take care of actors. I’m not explaining too much, but they feel safe, they feel guided, they feel a kind of dynamic that I can create. They know I can get the best of the best out of them. That’s what I do. That’s what I’m paid for.”

We expect to see the film pop up at fall festivals. Elwes has suggested as much and one of the production companies, H films, also said the film will be at more than one festival. We’ll keep you posted!
