'WILD MOUNTAIN THYME'
PUTS Jamie Dornan AND EMILY
BLUNT IN LOVE
|Emily Blunt takes over the lead female role|
Earlier last spring I told you that John Patrick Shanley is preparing to turn his Broadway stage play Outside Mullingar into a romantic movie titled WILD MOUNTAIN THYME and that Jamie Dornan and Holliday Grainger will play the lovebirds in it, but she is now being replaced by Emily Blunt with John Hamm and Christopher Walken also joining the cast in the story set in the enchanting landscapes of rural Ireland. Dornan and Blunt will play obstinate star crossed lovers, whose families are caught up in a feud over a hotly contested patch of land that separates their two farms!
Anthony (Jamie Dornan) always seems to be out in the fields working, worn down by his father’s (Christopher Walken) constant belittling. But what really stings is his father’s threat to bequeath the family farm to his American cousin Adam (John Hamm). Rosemary (Emily Blunt) at first seems to hold a grudge for having been shamed by Anthony in
childhood, but the sparks between them would keep a bonfire blazing through the night. Her mother Aoife (Dearbhla Molloy) strives to unite the families before it is too late.
