Angelina to play Gertrude Bell


Ridley Scott is developing a biopic of Gertrude Bell which Angelina Jolie is rumoured to be very interested in playing.     

Jeffrey Caine, best known as the writer of The Constant Gardener, is drafting the screenplay based on the life of Bell, an ambassadorial British writer who travelled the middle east and is described as the female Lawrence of Arabia and was responsible for establishing  what would become the modern framework for Jordan and Iraq in the first years of the 20th century, which led her to becoming a powerful figure in the political administration of the region.

Sounds right up Jolie’s alley, let’s hope she can actually pull it off, after watching “The Tourist” I’m not as convinced!
