Now, a new film is part of that future.
“I’m gonna be doing [a movie] in Connecticut in December, it’s called ‘Warrior,’” he revealed to us. “It’s a sports movie about a lacrosse player whose dad dies in the military.”
Although little is currently known about the flick or his co-stars, Lutz said that the role will offer him the chance to stretch some dramatic muscles, while simultaneously dealing with a timely subject. “[My character] has to cope with [the death], and not having a father,” explained the star, who also depicts a lacrosse player in his current recurring “90210” role. “[So he] just goes on a rebellious stage.”
Eventually, however, the young rebel learns to get his life back on track. “He goes away to this camp and really matures, and becomes a man,” Lutz said of the script. “Then he comes back and he finishes up and ties up all his loose ends.”
“It’s a really good story,” he explained of his reason for signing on to the film. “It’s really well-written.”
A few months back, MTV broke the story on “Strife,” a small character drama that will reunite Lutz with his “Twilight” co-star Ashley Greene. In addition to that movie and “Warrior,” the actor said that he’s eager to balance his high-profile success with strong indie scripts, even though the road can sometimes be difficult.
“I’m working on a couple of independents,” explained the 23-year-old star. “A lot of it is kinda tough right now with funding and the recession.”
Okay gang, this week’s “Twilight” Tuesday question is a special Election Tuesday question as well: Which “Twilight” character would make the best President? Why?
