World renowned actor Morgan Freeman is teaming up with fellow actors Harry Connick Jr. and Ashley Judd in a new movie called “Dolphin Tales.”

The film is based on the true story of a young dolphin named Winter who loses her tail in a crab trap and is rescued off the coast of Florida before being transferred to an aquarium. “Dolphin Tales” will focus on an 11-year-old boy with a huge heart who finds the dolphin missing her tail, and with the help of some friends, including Harry Connick Jr. as a marine biologist and Morgan Freeman as a doctor, he is able to create a prosthetic tail to replace the dolphin’s lost one. Ashley Judd is set to play the boy’s mother.

Production will begin September 27th in Clearwater, FL with the film due for release sometime next year via Warner Bros.
