Hollywood's Nicole Kidman is playing writer and British secret service operative, Gertrude Bell, in her upcoming film "Queen of the Desert."
Bell has been dubbed as a female "Lawrence of Arabia" for her role in shaping a new political order in the Middle East following the end of the First World War and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
"What was so beautiful about this movie is that you see what an exquisite area it is. I have always felt this pull for the desert," said Kidman, who said she had begged Herzog to let her have a scene taking a bath in the desert as the real Gertrude Bell had done.
A major portion of the filming took place in Morocco and Petra, Jordan. Principal photography with the main cast started in Merzouga on 13 January, 2014. Filming also took place at Marrakesh and Arfoud and continued till 26 February, 2014, in Ouarzazate, Morocco. After Morocco, filming moved to London and finished on 6 March, 2014, according to Wikipedia.
Although an official trailer is yet to be released, one fan created a trailer with a collage of stills from the film, along with informative details about Bell's life.
