A new featurette has been released showing behind-the-scenes footage of Pretty Little Liars star as Lady Lisa for upcoming action comedy Pixels.
The actress plays the computer game character that was the object of Ludlow Lamonsoff’s (Josh Gad) affection when he was a boy. In the movie the character comes to life as a sword-wielding kick-ass woman that is more than capable of holding her own.
Director Chris Columbus talks about Ashley and the character saying that the actress went through a lot of training for the role to be able to perfect the martial arts moves she does.
Ashley stars in the movie alongside Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Brian Cox.
The synopsis for Pixels is: As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
Pixels will be released on 12th August 2015.
