Movie magic comes to Wiggins, Mississippi

Movie magic comes to Wiggins, Mississippi

WIGGINS, MS (WDAM) -  This is a news release from Pat Harrison Waterway District Blog

Shark Lake, a movie set at Lake Tahoe in Nevada about – well, you guessed it – killer sharks in the lake is conducting filming at Flint Creek Water Park in Wiggins, Mississippi. Operated by the Pat Harrison Waterway District, Flint Creek is a 1900-acre park with a 650-acre lake full of bass, bream, crappie, and catfish…but no sharks except through special effects.

According to the plot summary at

, the movie stars Dolph Lundgren (known for his roles in The Expendables franchise, Universal Soldier, Red Scorpion, Masters of the Universe and as the Soviet boxer Ivan Drago in Rocky IV) as a black-market exotic species dealer named Clint who has recently been paroled from prison. Something he let loose strikes terror in a quiet town on Lake Tahoe and cop Meredith Hendricks and her team investigate as swimmers and land-lovers alike begin to become part of the food chain at an unbelievable rate. Meredith discovers they're not just hunting one eating machine, but a whole family of them. Not everyone will make it out alive, but those who do will never forget this summer at Shark Lake.

Daniel Zirilli, who previously filmed portions of the movie “Blunt Force” in Mississippi, is a producer on the movie. Jerry Dugan is the director of the film. The movie also stars Jen Oda, Ben Maccabee and James Chalke.

Filming is also being done in Ocean Springs and other locations.
