Pattinson’s post Twilight career seems to be geared towards independent productions. After Cronenberg, he said yes to Werner Herzog and will be teamed up with Naomi Watts who will be Gertrude Bell and the movie will tell the true story of this explorer from the turn of the century. Pattinson will be TE Lawrence who is better known as Lawrence of Arabia. They worked to bring the Hashemites into power in Jordan and Irak. Filming is scheduled to start at the end of Autumn 2012.
