Jon Hamm, Christopher Walken and Dearbhla Molloy will also star in the movie.

The movie will be directed by John Patrick Shanley, and will begin principal photography on September 30 on location in Ireland.

Here’s a plot synopsis: Anthony (Dornan) always seems to be out in the fields working, worn down by his father’s (Walken) constant belittling. But what really stings is his father’s threat to bequeath the family farm to his American cousin Adam (Hamm). Rosemary (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 (Molloy) strives to unite the families before it is too late.

Holliday Grainger was initially announced to play Emily‘s role.
