Lacrosse In The Movies: Producers Of The Movie “A Warrior’s Heart” Starring Kellan Lutz And Ashley Greene Release First “Posters” And Official Synopsis
Lacrosse In The Movies: “Warrior” Starring Kellan Lutz And Ashley Greene Is Set For Release In 2011 (Video)
In the movie “Warrior”, set for release sometime in 2011, Lutz plays a lacrosse player whose life spirals out of control after his father dies.
“Ashley’s friggin’ talented. It’s really cool to see your friend [in a different way] and to work with a friend, let alone her being so talented, to see her transform from one character to another,” he raved of Greene, who plays a girl named Brooklyn. “Alice is a fun little pixie character, and then Brooklyn, you know, is a sweet, lacrosse-player type of coach’s daughter. It’s fun working with her and seeing her transform herself.”
Despite their on-screen romance in “Warrior,” Lutz said that in real life he and Ashley are like brother and sister. “It’s very much like working with family,” he explained.
In late 2008, Greene spoke to MTV News about the project. “[‘Warrior’] is about Kellan’s journey,” she said. “It’s very much Kellan’s movie, which is really exciting for him. It’s his journey that he goes through, with trials and errors, and his temper and stuff like that. And I join forces with him, and my dad doesn’t like that very much, so we deal with that.

“Warrior” Lacrosse Movie: Interview With Actor Chris Cole, Sr. Middie Lacrosse Player From Foothill High School
LaxBuzz: “What was being on the set of “Warrior” like?
Chris:“I enjoyed being on the set, it was exciting. I had a great time with the cast and crew and especially enjoyed hanging out with Xander Ritz and Kyle Harrison. I also enjoyed seeing the movie making process. I played lacrosse all day which is what I love doing the most and got paid. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
LaxBuzz: “What characters did you play and what were their roles?”
Chris:“My favorite role was being the lacrosse stunt double for #24 who’s name in the movie is Dupree. I also was #5 for Brierfield and played a student. In addition, I was #11 for the West Coast Cardinal team, #27 for the Sierra Team and an injured player on the side line. At the end of the movie I was #17 for Navy. I also was in some locker room and weight room scenes.”
LaxBuzz: What were your favorite scenes?
Chris: “If I answered that it would give away the end of the movie. I will give you my second favorite and that would be when Connor played by Kellan breaks the trophy case at school. I also liked the scene where I run through the tunnel dressed as a player from Navy.”

MD: The story is a coming of age tale told through lacrosse. It follows Conor Sullivan (played by 90210’s Kellan Lutz), a west coast hotshot whose dad is in the marine corps. And he’s recalled to Iraq, but rather than leave the family in the west coast, he moves them back to his family home in Maryland. His son ends up going to the same prep school he went to and plays for one of his former teammates who is the coach there.
But everything falls apart for the kid. Instead of the hotshot, he’s still a good player, but one of many on the east coast. He can come to terms with it and things go to hell in a hand basket.
Adam Beech plays a friend of the father’s who is Native American and he steps in to help make things right.
We shot part of it on Onondaga reservation in upstate New York. He teaches him the old ways of lacrosse — the curator’s game. No pads, no helmets, wooden sticks. Teaches him humility and pushes him.
Eventually, the kid goes back home to make things right.
JB: How did the idea for this film come about?
MD: I was sitting on the sidelines at my son’s lacrosse practice. He just graduated from HS and I was sitting on the sidelines talking with the other dads and we lamented there had never been a movie dedicated to lacrosse, especially at a time when it’s the number one fastest growing sport among the youth demographic.
And I had written a number of books and dabbled in film and TV, so I sat down to write a script.
My agent took it to Paramount and they wanted to buy it, but they wanted to make it a soccer movie and make the lead character a girl.
But the son’s name was Conor, which is my son’s name and the character wears number nine, like my son.
Like every good writer I wanted to put personal stuff in it and that goes out the window if you sell. So we decided to make it ourselves.
MD: We were in Pasadena last week, but now we’re at College of the Canyons (north of L.A.). We’re shooting the big championship sequence there and it’s been cold and long nights. We’ve been shooting through the night.
MD: If you look at College of the Canyons, and you’ve seen it in so many movies probably, the field is surrounded by pine trees. It doesn’t have a west coast look to it. It looks like it could be anywhere on the field.
