LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Fans may recognize the chiseled Kellan Lutz and stunning Ashley Greene from their respective roles as Emmett and Alice Cullen in “The Twilight Saga,” but before they became famous for gracing the screen as vampire brother and sister, Kellan and Ashley co-starred in a very different onscreen relationship.
The duo filmed the movie “A Warrior’s Heart” in 2009, and while it boasts a modest PG rating, the movie – which will finally be released on December 2 – also boasts plenty of kissing scenes between Kellan and Ashley that will have Twi-Hards reeling.
The film follows Conor Sullivan (Kellan Lutz), a hotheaded, high school lacrosse player, who is dating the coach’s daughter, Brooklyn (Ashley Greene).
However, Connor’s emotions spiral out of control when his father loses his life in Iraq, and it’s up to Conor’s family and friends to help steer him back on the right track.
Kellan was attracted to the film because it’s not “just another sports movie.”
“It’s not cliché, where the kid wins the championship at the buzzer,” Kellan said in an on set interview. “It’s a coming-of-age story about a boy and his journey to become a man.”
It was also a first for Kellan, who got to take on the role of the project’s leading man.
“I’ve never been number one on a call sheet,” Kellan continued in the interview. “I’ve been 7…8…13…26…142…[but] in this project, I’m in every single scene. I’m never in my trailer, which I’m not used to!”
