CBS Films Dates ‘Salmon Fishing In Yemen’

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen will be released by CBS Films on March 2, 2012 in a limited run. It stars Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt alongside Kristin Scott Thomas and Amr Waked in a tale of fly-fishing and political spinning, unexpected heroism, and late-blooming love. I hear the studio, which bought the film at Toronto last month, thinks it has awards potential but didn’t want to make it a contender this late in the year.
Directed by Oscar-nominee Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) and written by Oscar-winner Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire), the filmis based on Paul Torday’s acclaimed novel about a scientist who looks to fulfills a sheikh’s dream of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to his homeland in Yemen. It is produced by Paul Webster (The Motorcycle Diaries) and executive produced by Jamie Laurenson, Stephen Garrett, Paula Jalfon, Zygi Kamasa and Guy Avshalom.

Syfy Developing TV Series Based On “The Adjustment Bureau”

As reported by Deadline, Syfy will be developing a television series based on The Adjustment Bureau. George Nolfi, writer/director for the film adaptation from earlier this year, will be executive producing the new TV series along with former Smallville EPs Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin. Swimmer and Slavkin will be writing the new show.
The Adjustment Bureau starred Matt Damon and Emily Blunt as two people, a politician and a dancer, whose romance comes under attack by the mysterious government agency by the same name of the film. This bureau (light spoiler alert) uses its powers and clout to push the lives of people in a specific direction, in this case one that did not include Damon and Blunt’s characters as a couple. The film was built heavily around the idea of destiny; Damon and Blunt spend most of film fighting against the Bureau, trying to make their own place in the world. The film was actually based off a short story called Adjustment Team by the science fiction god, Philip K. Dick.
Philip Dick’s writings have spawned a few television programs and an incredible number of film adaptations, some of which are amongst the most recognizable in the genre. Blade Runner, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly, and Total Recall (which is coming back to the big screen next summer, by the way) are probably the most famous movie adaptations of Philip K. Dick’s work. Anyway, I think the concept behind The Adjustment Bureau is at least reasonably well suited for the episodic TV format and the Syfy channel in particular, of course, and we’ll be keeping an eye for more details as they come.

Emily Blunt For YSL

Emily Blunt is the new face of Yves Saint Laurent’s famous Opium fragrance. The British actress will appear in a television advertising campaign shot by Romain Gavras this October, as well as a print and outdoor campaign shot by Patrick Demarchelier. “It is a really exciting experience to embody this legendary fragrance, which has stood the test of time without its allure ever being diminished,” Blunt said today. “Being a part of this new campaign and being able to tell the story of this very evocative fragrance is a real thrill.” Opium was first launched in 1977, but made headlines in 2000 – when Tom Ford was creative director of YSL – due to Stephen Meisel’s controversial advertising campaign featuring a nude Sophie Dahl, apparently in the throes of ecstasy. The advert was later banned by the Advertising Standards Authority, but the fragrance remains one of YSL’s best-known scents.
