We’re big fans of Dolph Lundgren here at Arrow in the Head and JoBlo, so it’s cool to hear that the Swedish actor / director / producer / author / martial artist / chemical engineer is executive producing a documentary about his own life, a project appropriately titled Dolph. According to Variety, Dolph will chronicle Lundgren’s “rise to becoming one of Hollywood’s most treasured action stars”.

Andrew Holmes (The Humanity Bureau) is writing and directing Dolph, with Adam Scorgie and Shane Fennessey producing. Score G Productions and Famous Red Car Pictures are executive producing the documentary alongside Lundgren’s Red Orm Productions.

Lundgren provided the following statement:

I feel like now is the perfect time to produce this documentary about my life story, because I’ve now come full circle in a way. There have been some tough times that I’ve been through, and I’ve had to pay a price to get where I am now.  This film isn’t a celebration of my known successes, rather an examination of a man’s journey to truly find himself and the happiness he desires.  I want audiences to really get to know me, and maybe my story will help someone understand what they too might have to endure to get to that certain place in their life. Our message is that the journey can be tough, but if you keep going, everyone has a chance to eventually get to their destination.”

Holmes added:

Working with the likes of Dolph Lundgren and Adam Scorgie is a dream scenario for any filmmaker. I was a fan of Dolph’s prior to the project, but it wasn’t until I started doing my research that I realized how highly educated and hard-working he is. It’s simple to see that audiences are going to devour this man’s awe-inspiring story, which has the ability to connect and resonate with every person who watches. In today’s world, people like Dolph Lundgren, who have risked everything they have to find themselves, offer great motivation for those who are currently grinding to achieve their dreams, whatever that may be.”

Lundgren has nearly 100 screen acting credits to his name, including Rocky IV (which now has a newly released director’s cut), Masters of the Universe, Red Scorpion, The Punisher, I Come in Peace (a.k.a. Dark Angel), Showdown in Little Tokyo, Universal Soldier and a couple of its sequels, the Expendables franchise, Arrow, Creed II, Aquaman, and the upcoming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
