Three years and a half in the making, the movie was finally released in many Latin American countries. The Dolphin (El Delfin) movie, based on the book by Sergio Barbaren, who claims to be very satisfied with the results of the film thus far, is currently showing in Mexico and many other countries, and there are already talks of a sequel.
According to Barbaren, it was very satisfying to carry the message of his book to the big screen. “During the beginning of the project, which is an international production, the only thing I had to be concerned about was making sure the message of the book carried over to the movie, but the project grew so much that once Twentieth Century Fox got involved, I ended up reading more than 100 books in order to learn how to become a movie producer”, said Barbaren over the phone.
But the Dolphin dreams will not end there, as there is a sequel being planned. The author of the book will only act as a consultant this time. “It was great being the producer of this film. It was three and a half years of work, but I have to admit that I am going to stick to writing.”
Fox has the first option to make a sequel out of the movie. I will remove myself slowly from the project, but will continue to oversee what will happen on the second movie, he said.
