The film stars Blunt as Harriet Chetwode-Talbot, a consultant charged by a Sheikh (Amr Waked) to introduce salmon to the Yemen so he may fish there.
She enlists the aid of sceptical fisheries expert Fred Jones (McGregor) and the Prime Minister's press secretary Bridget Maxwell (Kristin Scott Thomas).
McGregor recently abandoned plans to make his directorial debut on a film about a famous 1968 yacht race after he discovered that a similar film was already in development.
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is directed by Lasse Hallström (Casanova, Chocolat) and has been adapted by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) from Paul Torday's original novel.
It will open on March 9 in the US and April 20 in the UK.
