Robert Pattinson is the King of the Desert!

The former Twilight thesp is currently in Morocco filming Queen of the Desert, which is based on the life of formidable British explorer, traveller, archeologist and political officer Gertrude Bell. Taking another giant leap away from the mainstream, Pattinson will assume the role of Lawrence of Arabia, a good friend of Bell's.

The movie, directed by Werner Herzog, also stars Naomi Watts, Nicole Kidman, Damian Lewis and James Franco. But it's not the stellar cast that have been singing the 27-year-old star's praises...

Young producer Hicham Hajji is so impressed with RPattz, that he's taken to Twitter to tell the world. Check this out:

I knew it! What a cherub!

The movie began filming in December last year and is expected to hit theaters in 2015. It sounds like Rob could be in the desert for quite a while... Do you think he's missing Kristen and the dogs?

What do you guys think of RPattz? Will you be checking out Queen of the Desert when it arrives in theaters? Sound off below!
