Dunedin has become the main filming site of "A Taste of Love," a romantic comedy about a young woman who returns home to find herself and falls in love with an old friend.
In a Hollywood move that doesn't happen often, writers kept the town’s name for the movie.
"Dunedin is the name of the city in the film," said Tony Armer, St. Pete/Clearwater’s film commissioner. "The local businesses, and the local restaurants you see are the actual names of the businesses in the film."
Also local? The dozens of extras you’ll see. "The film requires a lot of extras in the background," said Armer. "We actually had more than 8,000 people submit their information to be an extra in the project."
The film is expected to be released in early 2022. Producers say the film will likely be released on a channel like Hallmark, or a streaming service such as Netflix.
