Clearwater, Florida -- Tampa Bay goes Hollywood this weekend with the release of the new film "Dolphin Tale" starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick, Jr. and Ashley Judd.
"Dolphin Tale" is based on the true story of Winter the dolphin, from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Winter lost her tail in a crab trap accident. She faced the very real possibility of dying until doctors fitted her with a prosthetic tail.
In the film, Oscar winner Morgan Freeman plays the doctor who creates the tail.
10 News Morning Show anchor Ginger Gadsden had the chance to talk to the actors and filmmakers behind "Dolphin Tale." The movie opens on Friday in 3D and 2D versions.
