In news that makes me wish 3D was en vogue during Free Willy era, Alcon Entertainment is recruiting Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, and Harry Connick Jr. to star in the 3D inspirational family film Dolphin Tale.  Charles Martin Smith, whose resume kinda awesomely includes both the similarly pet-centric Air Bud and the pilot for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will direct.

According to THR, the script from Karen Janszen (A Walk to Remember) is inspired by the true story — the narrative revolves around a boy who befriends Winter, a dolphin who lost its tail in a crab trap.  Alcon is looking to cast Judd as the boy’s mother, Connick Jr. as the vet who rescues Winter, and Freeman as the doctor who constructs a prosthetic dolphin limb and (presumably) has an amazing voice.
