The Immortals actor said that he hopes to follow in the footsteps of previous action film icons like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.
"I love action movies. That's really where I want to spearhead my career," Access Hollywood quotes Lutz as saying.
Lutz went on to joke that it was very difficult to remain serious while filming one of Immortal's pivotal fight sequences.
He explained: "We were doing the epic battle scene at the very end [of Immortals], a long five-minute fight, but I was grinning ear to ear! They were like, 'Kellan you're a God, you're about to kick ass, you can't be smiling so much'.
"I really had to work on not smiling. Then they would push in [for a close up] and would say, 'Kellan, you are smiling with your eyes…' I was like, 'What does that even mean?'"
Lutz previously commented that he launched a signature clothing line with Abbot + Mai because he's always had a keen eye for fashion.
Immortals is now playing in US and UK cinemas.
Lutz also stars in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, which opens in cinemas worldwide on Friday, November 18.
