Lasse Hallstrom Movie to See in Spring 2012, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

For all you Lasse Hallstrom fans (me), lovers of south Yemen (one of my all time favorite destinations), fly-fishing  afficionados (some day), and multi-cultural stories (me), this movie will be a must see!!  Imagine,  an Arab who hires a Scotsman to bring fly-fishing to the high desert.  Fun!!  Release date is set for March 2012. Yalla!!


CBS Films has released a trailer for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, adapted from Paul Torday’s novel and directed by Lasse Hallstrom from a script by Oscar winner Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). reported the film, which stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas, was originally seen “as a possible awards contender after it premiered at Toronto in the fall, but the distributor decided it was too late for the tale of Middle East politics and fly-fishing to enter this year’s Oscar race. It instead has set it for a limited-run release March 2, 2012.”
