ST. PETERSBURG — A star-studded cast is shooting a Florida Man mermaid movie in St. Petersburg.
According to an email from production company Bad Grey, the movie, titled “Mermaid,” stars Johnny Pemberton as a “Florida Man” addicted to pain killers who, while at his lowest point, finds a wounded mermaid. “Fascination becomes a drug-infused, one-sided relationship-sending him further into decline. When word spreads about his secret, he’ll stop at nothing to protect her.”
The movie also features Tom Arnold of “True Lies,” Robert Patrick of “Terminator 2,” Kevin Nealon of “Saturday Night Live,” Michael Madsen of “Kill Bill” and Kirk Fox of “Reservation Dogs.” It is being produced by the Bad Grey company.
Filming began on Sept. 12 and wraps this week.
