Writer/director Charles Martin Smith ("Air Bud," "Stone of Destiny") has been hired by Alcon Entertainment's Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove to write and direct an inspirational drama "A Dolphin's Tale."

Alcon acquired the feature rights from Clearwater Marine Aquarium CEO David Yates.

The movie is based on true event, which revolves around a young boy who befriended Winter, a female dolphin who lost her tail in a crab trap. He motivated everyone around him to help save the dolphin by creating a prosthetic appendage to replace her tail.

Alcon's co-founders/co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will finance and co-produce with Richard Ingber, their marketing president. Warner Bros. will handle the distribution, following motion picture production agreement between Alcon and Warner.

Winter, an Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin, a playful two-year-old, was found off the coast of Florida, caught in a crab trap. Kevin Carroll, one of the world's leading prosthetists, who has designed prosthetics for people, also for dogs, an ostrich, and even a duck, successfully created the prosthetic appendage for Winter.
