Trailer for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, starring Emily Blunt, Ewen McGregor and Amr Waked.
Slumdog Millionaire scribe Simon Beaufoy teams with Lasse Hallström, helmed of Chocolat for the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
The story tells of a visionary sheik (Amr Waked) who has a big dream – to bring salmon fishing to the desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative (Emily Blunt) to turn his dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on for its potential as a ‘good will’ story.
Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
Also in the cast of the CBS Films release which opens March 2nd, 2012, are Kristin Scott Thomas, Rachael Stirling, Tom Mison and Catherine Steadman.
This looks simply wonderful.
