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.
