“Wild Mountain Thyme” has set off Irish accent alarms in Ireland, after the rom-com’s first trailer was revealed Wednesday, featuring cast members Emily Blunt, Jamie Dornan and Christopher Walken – yes, Christopher Walken – attempting the challenging accent.
Oscar-winner John Patrick Shanley’s film (opening Dec. 11), based on his 2014 Broadway play “Outside Mullingar,” takes place in Ireland’s County Mayo and centers on whether Blunt’s besotted Rosemary Muldoon will get together with Dornan’s Anthony Reilly.
