Werner Herzog Talks About Rob and 'Queen of the Desert'

Translation
Playboy: For your next film 'Queen of the Desert' you have cast 'Twilight' teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson.
Herzog:
He approached me. That is why I am taken seriously in Hollywood. Because so many good actors want to work with me. Nicolas Cage was never better than in 'Bad Lieutenant'.

Playboy: What do you see in Robert Pattinson?
Herzog:
He has charisma, he is smart, he writes. I hope we will see him one day as a director. 'Queen of the Desert' is not yet fully funded, and we don't know yet where we will shoot. Possibly, that should be in Syria.

The interview is from January. There's a new update about the movie's possible location and schedule from June (click here)

Ego much?... ~_~

However I do agree with him: I also see Robert as a director... Actually more than as an actor; and he's ready good as such, so my director-hopes are quite high... :)

Hopes? Or expectations?... Whatever... Sorry, my English sucks sometimes...

He has the talent, but he must grove up and learn too much to be a director. he is playful, he read much but that is not enough. He must learn so mch. He has time, he is young.
