Alison Lohman took a little time out from promoting Drag Me to Hell to talk to Sci-Fi Wire about her role in the upcoming dystopian action flick Gamer. In Gamer's vision of the future, video games have evolved to the point that players manipulate actual people in life and death combat. Lohman plays Trace, a member of the resistance who attempts to get death row inmate turned top cyber-gladiator Kable (Gerard Butler) back to his family. The world in which this all takes place is a plausible future, she contends, but not a happy one:
"It's not a pretty world. It's chaotic. Everything's debaucherous."
As for the movie itself, she apparently didn't start out with the highest of expectations. Working with directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor turned her around though, and she found herself impressed with the result. "It turned out better than I expected, to be honest," she says.
