Homeland star and our current favourite ginger Damian Lewis is joining another flame-haired beauty Nicole Kidman in new drama Queen of the Desert.

Hitfix reports that The actor who plays the world's most famous fictional traitor is set to hit the even bigger time with this movie which is to be helmed by directing heavy-weight Wernor Herzog. The film will follow the true-life love affair between Lewis' character, an English army lieutenant (with a mouthful of a name) Colonel Charles Hotham Montagu Doughty-Wylie and Gertrude Bell (Kidman) who was a famed explorer and writer.

While we breathe a sigh of relief that Brody is back in Homeland, we are dying to see him tackle other roles. He and Kidman, who will next be seen in Grace of Monaco, will certainly make a handsome pair.
