Newlywed shark-bite survivor Bethany Hamilton has landed a role in the sequel to Harry Connick, Jr.'s surprise hit film Dolphin Tale.

Surfer Hamilton, who lost her left arm in a shark attack a decade ago when she was just 13, inspired the film Soul Surfer and doubled for actress Anna Sophia Robb in the movie, but now she's set to feature in a film as herself.

She'll team up with Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman, Kris Kristofferson and Ashley Judd for Dolphin Tale 2, which is scheduled for release in September, 2014.
