On a flight to Zurich a couple of years ago, I had the chance to meet Daniel Bernhardt, who is probably best known for playing Agent Johnson in The Matrix Reloaded. Nice guy; even signed my copy of the movie later on when I had the opportunity to have a friend who used to work for the airline, present it to him. Bernhardt is also known for starring in several martial arts films, including taking over the Bloodsport franchise from JCVD. So I was kind of surprised to find out that he’s a monster – in his latest film that is: Lockjaw.
Bernhardt joins Mehcad Brooks (True Blood), Serinda Swan (Smallville’s Zatanna) and Sid Haig in the film, playing the titular character, says THR.com. The story centers around a group of family and friends who, en
route to New Orleans, are sidetracked in the Louisiana bayou and
encounter a monster named Lockjaw who is revered by the locals as a god. Brooks will play a Navy Seal back from the Middle East; Swan will
play his fiancee, who is abducted to be the creature’s bride. Horror
movie staple Haig will play a man named Chopper. Fred M. Andrews wrote the script and is directing. Production starts this weekend in Baton Rouge.
