Ridley Scott takes on Gertrude Bell biopic

Ridley Scott still looking to stop other great directors projects.

Werner Herzog will be working on another biopic after a while. He is also in serious talks with Naomi Watts to take up the role of Gertrude Bell. Ridley Scott is also another director trying to get his picture of the floors, but is not getting the cast for the film.

The Ridley Scott film will be written by Jeffrey Caine. The film would tell the story of Gertrude Bell, a real life British woman who was a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attache were key in helping found the modern states of Iraq and Jordan and installing their first rulers, King Abdullah and King Faisal.

Herzog is the director who is also in contention to get this project of the floor. Ridley Scott is in the pre production for his Alein prequel film Prometheus. He has got the cast for the film. It will take some more time for the film to shoot.

So if the silly Scott gets an actress then he will be able to go ahead with this film. It will be a more interesting proposition to watch the combination of Herzog and Watts on the screen. Ridley Scott really needs to take break what do you guys think.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.


  1. You’ve got it mixed up. Herzog is writing the script for his Queen of the Desert, with the talented Naomi Watts already on board. Scott is planning his own Queen of the Desert and has asked Jeffrey Caine to write the script. No actress yet.

    With Herzog and Watts, it is going to be an epic film.

    With Scott and whoever playing Bell, it can only be a good entertaining film at best.
