'Dolphin Tale 2' filming comes to Clearwater Oct. 21

Published Oct. 4, 2013

Anyone hoping to be an extra on Dolphin Tale 2 is out of luck. Clearwater Marine Aquarium CEO David Yates said Friday there are no plans to hold an open casting call for extras, as was done in when the original Dolphin Tale was filmed in Pinellas. This weekend is your last chance until Thanksgiving to visit Winter and her pals, including Hope, right, before the aquarium closes for production. Principal photography begins Oct. 21, continuing through January with holiday breaks when the aquarium will re-open to the public. Star Harry Connick Jr. isn't scheduled to arrive until late November, while Kris Kristofferson told the Times he'll film his scenes in December. Dolphin Tale 2 is slated for a Sept. 19, 2014 release.
