From his earliest memories growing up in Westport, Connecticut, Luke Greenfield
wanted to make movies. With 25 short films to his credit before even entering the prestigious USC School of Cinema-Television, Greenfield stayed in Hollywood after completing the program to pursue his dream. The result of his unique mix of talent, discipline and passion for the medium is evident in his second film, The Girl Next Door
Previously, Greenfield co-wrote and directed The Right Hook, a 10-minute short film he wrote with actor David Scotti. The edgy comedy attracted enormous attention and served as a calling card for Greenfield as he pursued feature film opportunities in Hollywood. At 28, before even completing The Right Hook, Greenfield was offered what would become his Hollywood directorial debut, The Animal. Starring Rob Schneider, the film was produced by Adam Sandler and Revolution Studios for Columbia Pictures in 2001.
