[Casting News] James Franco May Join Naomi Watts in “Queen of the Desert”

James Franco to the rescue?

When Werner Herzog’s Gertrude Bell biopic lost Jude Law, it ground the production – starring Naomi Watts and Robert Pattinson – to a halt, but now it appears Oz the Great and Powerful himself may ride in to save the day.

It's reported that filmmakers are now in talks with Franco to take over Law’s role in “Queen of the Desert”, but they caution scheduling is still being worked out and everything is contingent upon that right now.

I can't stand either Franco or Pattinson. Neither one of them are very good actors and every movie Pattinson is in, that isn't the silly Twilight garbage, is a flop both critically and financially.

What's really bad is Pattinson would rob off all the publicity from her.

Franco is not a good choice.

I hope Herzog will start shooting this within this year.

Pattinson as Lawrence of Arabia can be okay, but James Franco to play a British Diplomat is just inappropriate to me. Jude Law was a perfect choice.
