Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor Go "Salmon Fishing" in NYC
Fri, 09 Mar 2012

Joining forces on the red carpet once more, Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor were side-by-side at a New York City screening of "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" on Thursday night (March 8).

The good-looking co-stars were accompanied by screenwriter Simon Beaufoy, with the trio posing for pictures inside the Crosby Street Hotel venue while garnering a little last-minute press ahead of tomorrow's release of their motion picture.

As for the Lasse Hallström directed movie, "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" is the tale of "a fisheries expert who's approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert before embarking on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible possible."

Of joining the cast of the film, Miss Blunt told USA Today that her spirited character of Harriet pulled her in, as she said, "There was a buoyancy to her, a tenacity and warmth."

She seemed very British to me and very familiar. I'm quite like her, I suppose," the 29-year-old added. "Everything about the film didn't feel derivative of something else I'd seen or done. I do strive to find projects that are trying to carve out some new space. I enjoy projects that leap away from the crowd a little bit."
