Luketic also directed the romantic comedy Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, which starred Kate Bosworth, Nathan Lane, Josh Duhamel and Topher Grace.
Born in Sydney, Luketic won his first award at the age of 15, when he was honored for Best Film at the ATOM Film Festival. Luketic went on to study at the Victorian College of Arts - School of Film and Television (VCA), one of Australia's most prestigious film schools. His award-winning short film, Titsiana Booberini, screened at many film festivals, including Sundance, Telluride, Aspen and Santa Barbara and brought him to the attention of Hollywood.
