The movie "will focus around the rivalry between Arabian rulers in the 1930s just as oil is being discovered."

Black Gold will also star Slumdog Millionaire's Frieda Pinto and Sherlock Holmes star Mark Strong.

Filming is set to begin next week in Tunisia with a release date scheduled for Christmas 2011.
