Dolphin Tale 2 swimming before the cameras in September


A sequel to Alcon Entertainment’s family hit  “Dolphin Tale” has been greenlit, with the sequel to due to shoot in September, Moviehole has been informed.

Charles Martin Smith, the “American Graffiti” alum who directed the 2011 original, is currently polishing the script.  Smith will likely reprise his directing role on the film.

The film will tell the further stories of Winter, the dolphin with the mechanical tail – now a star attraction at the Clearwater Aquarium in Florida, where the film was set.

Alcon returns to the Clearwater Aquarium for it’s September shoot.

“Dolphin Tale” starred Nathan Gamble, Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman and Harry Connick Jr; no word on which cast members- if any – will return for the follow-up (sequel is sure to make a big splash, regardless!)
