CBS recently debuted its new trailer for film adaptation, Salmon Fishing in Yemen. The film stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas.
The film is being directed by Lasse Hallstrom and is based on the novel of the same name by Paul Torday.
The film follows a sheik who has the odd dream to bring salmon fishing to the desert. He goes to all lengths to get the project complete including trying to gain the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert who doesn’t quite under the project. It seems the feat in unachievable until an overzealous press secretary thinks it has the potential to become a “good will” story and decides to lend a hand. The unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on the journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible can become possible.
