Greenlit takes a deep dive into the wild world of how your favorite film and television projects came to be from idea, through development and production, and eventually reached your screen. Host Matthew Helderman (film producer, financier and media entrepreneur) brings a background of 300+ feature film and TV projects experience to chatting with the biggest names in front of and behind the camera from hits like The Office, Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, The Royal Tenanbaums Grand Budapest Hotel, The Irishman, Hook, Ant-Man and many more.
In today’s very special episode, we sit down with Swedish actor and action movie-star Dolph Lundgren (@Dolph_Lundgren). You’ve seen him “try to break” Rocky – but what you may not know is that he is a savant. After earning his Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering in Australia, Dolph turned down a PhD at MIT to pursue acting. The decision was well worth it – just a few years later, he would make his near feature debut as Ivan Drago in Rocky IV (1985), leaving behind a well paid engineering career to become an international action phenom. In this exciting episode, we talk about how Lundgren’s path led him to acting, hanging out with Andy Warhol, Michael Jackson and David Bowie in the 80s, his longtime friendship with Sylvester Stallone, and much much more.
Dolph’s collaborations with BondIt include the Buffalo 8 Post Production and BondIt financed and Executive Produced film Castle Falls (2021) and the BondIt financed project Blackwater (2018).
