Jamie Dornan was recently cast as the lead in the upcoming romance movie Wild Mountain Thyme, and it seems he’ll be in a pretty good company since Emily Blunt and Jon Hamm decided to join him.

This project will also star Christopher Walken and Dearbhla Molloy, and it tells the story of a young man who spends his days working on his father’s farm and dealing with his constant belittling. Despite his hard work, his father is threatening he’ll leave the farm to his cousin Adam, leaving his family in shambles.

Wild Mountain Thyme is based on the screenplay by John Patrick Shanley, who’ll also be in charge of directing. He previously won a screenwriting Oscar for his work on Moonstruck and received another nod for Doubt.

Emily Blunt is currently attached to several other projects, including Jungle Cruise, Not Fade Away and sequels of her previous movies A Quiet Place and Edge of Tomorrow. Jon Hamm is soon set to appear in Lucy in the Sky and Top Gun: Maverick.
