Salmon Fishing in the Yemen stars Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor, Kristin Scott Thomas, Amr Waked and is directed by Lasse Hallstrom.
Synopsis: From the director of Chocolat and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. When Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh’s (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a “good will” story, 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.
The movie will be released to theaters on March 9th 2012. You can find all our coverage of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen here.
