LOS ANGELES, Dec 3, 2011/ — Twitterers behold! Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene have taken to Twitter to release details on their first starring roles in the highly anticipated romantic drama “A Warrior’s Heart.”
Arriving in theaters and on Video-On-Demand on December 2nd, “A Warrior’s Heart” was written by Martin Dugard and directed by Mike Sears. The film not only stars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene (“The Twilight Saga”) but also Adam Beach (“Cowboys and Aliens”), Gabrielle Anwar (“TV’s “Burn Notice”) and Chord Overstreet (“Glee”).
Stars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene began tweeting about the film this week which has caused an avalanche of interest on Twitter from Twilight fans. Within minutes of Kellan and Ashley’s tweets, thousands of fans responded with their own tweets asking where they could see the film.
On Friday “A Warrior’s Heart” will arrive in both a 10-city limited release and a same day Video-On Demand release in approximately 100 million homes.

Best known for their roles as Emmett and Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” movies, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene’s incredibly moving performances have been getting a lot of positive buzz and the arduous training Kellan and co-star Chord Overstreet undertook to play star lacrosse players has earned critical praise at early screenings.
In shock and denial over his Marine father’s death, high school lacrosse star Conor Sullivan (Kellan Lutz) starts acting out in self destructive ways including a violent on-field clash with his long-time nemesis (Chord Overstreet).
To straighten him out, his mother (Gabrielle Anwar) sends him to a wilderness lacrosse camp run by his dad’s Native American combat buddy (Adam Beach). Strengthened by the love and support from his girlfriend Brooklyn (Ashley Greene) Conor embraces the game’s Native American roots and opens his eyes to the true meaning of sportsmanship and life.
“This is a movie the whole family can watch together” said producer Steven Istock “It’s a date movie, a feel good movie and fans of Kellan Lutz and and Ashley Greene are going to be delighted.”
