The Werner Herzog-directed flick centers on English army Lieutenant Colonel Charles Hotham Montagu Doughty-Wylie (Lewis) and famed explorer/writer Gertrude Bell (Kidman), their affair and their letters sent during 1912-1915.
Production starts shooting in December, with Herzog at the helm and Nick Raslan/Palmyra Films, Cassian Elwes and Michael Benaroya producing.
Lewis plays Nicolas Brody in "Homeland," the new season on now. Kidman has several projects coming up, including "Grace of Monaco," recently announced "Strangerland" and the live-action/animation adaptation of "Paddington."
