Actor, producer, writer and director Steven Luke is making a name for himself in the action genre having brought multiple movies about WWII to life. Luke, who is an expert historian in the last great war has parlayed his history degree into a full-on film career having produced 21 projects as well as directed ten thus far. The graduate of South Dakota University has directed such films as Battle of the Bulge Wunderland, Battle of the Bulge: Winter War and most recently Come Out Fighting and Operation Seawolf. Luke has had the honor of working with such high-profile names like Luke Goss, Tom Berenger, MMA legend Chuck Liddell, Kellen Lutz, Tyrese Gibson, Frank Grillo and action hall of famer Dolph Lundgren multiple times.
In his latest WWII epic Operation Seawolf, which hits theaters and VOD on Friday, October 7th Dolph Lundgren stars as well as genre favorite Frank Grillo in a tale of the lesser-known battle for the seas during the war. The movie focuses on a desperate Germany who makes one last ditch effort to turn the tides of the war by attempting to destroy New York City.
In this in-depth interview which I conducted back in June for The Action Fix Podcast, Luke talks about the new film Operation Seawolf along within the upcoming Come Out Fighting as well as his past projects. Luke gives us a behind the scenes look at his life in the film industry and how he manages to create such adrenaline laced films on a budget.
