What version of TeXShop are you using? If it's pre-3.23 (well, maybe 3.22) then you need the line

% !TEX TSprogram = lualatex

and then make sure you use Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T) to do the typesetting. Also, check that you have the LuaLaTeX engine (may have other capitalization) active but clicking on the popup menu on the Source Toolbar (NOT the Typeset Menu).

Good Luck,
