When Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene do press together, we automatically assume that they’ll be talking vampires — but for once, this isn’t about “Breaking Dawn.” This Friday (Dec. 2) another Lutz/Greene collaboration hits theaters and video-on-demand.
The low-budget picture “A Warrior’s Heart” features Lutz as a star lacrosse player who begins to rebel and lash out after his Marine father dies in combat. It doesn’t sound like warm-and-fuzzy holiday fare, but when a wartime buddy of his dad’s steps in, the character learns some important lessons about what it means to be a man.
“This movie has everything in it,” Lutz says in a newly released interview. “It’s a great coming-of-age story. It’s that action sports movie where a lot of times I get to do my own stunts. I’ve been so bruised and scraped up from this movie. But I love it.”
Greene was attracted to the role because her character, Brooklyn, is a “strong female.” She admits, “Yes, she does fall in love with the hero of the film, but it’s kind of this battle. Brooklyn kind of helps Connor through his problems. She’s a strong character, which I really, really was drawn to.”
