http://www.crookedarrows.com – Meet some of the members of the Crooked Arrows team, how they found out about the audition and what being in the first lacrosse movie, and really the first mainstream movie to feature Native Americans as well, means to them.
In shock and denial over his Marine father’s death overseas, high school lacrosse star Conor Sullivan starts acting out in self-destructive ways until he is kicked off the team and sent to a wilderness lacrosse camp run by his dad’s Native-American combat buddy (Adam Beach). With support from his new love (Ashley Greene), Conor embraces the game’s deeper roots and opens his eyes to the true meaning of sportsmanship and life.
Though the film is at its core a romantic story of triumph over adversity, it also focuses on the growing sport of lacrosse and contains fantastic sports-action sequences. Kellan Lutz and co-star Chord Overstreet (best known as Sam Evans on “Glee”), undertook arduous training in order to star as champion lacrosse players. Major League Lacrosse has recognized “A Warrior’s Heart” as the first film to use the sport (and its Native-American origins) as not only a backdrop, but as the character-building game that lacrosse fans have identified with for years.
“This is a movie the whole family can watch together,” said producer Istock. “It’s a date movie, a feel good movie, and a sports movie… fans of Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene will be especially delighted.”
Starring Brandon Routh, Gil Birmingham, Crystal Allen, and Chelsea Ricketts – a story centered on a Native American lacrosse team making its way through a prep school league tournament.
Directed by Steve Rash
Produced by J.Todd Harris and Mitchell Peck
