Lucas Till Opens Up About
'Battle: Los Angeles'
"I'm Corporal Grayson, a Marine who has to defend the world -- or defend Los Angeles more specifically -- from the invasion of we-don't-know-what," Lucas says.
Actually, we kind of know what. The sci-fi flick follows a platoon of Marines as they defend themselves against an alien invasion in L.A. Of course, with Marines, aliens and the word "battle" in the title, there will be no lack of special effects in the film.
"I can say that I surf for a little bit in the movie before the action starts really picking up, but once the action does start picking up, that's it -- pure action for the rest of the movie," Lucas confirms.
As for whether the teen star believes in space invaders, Lucas has yet to be convinced that they exist. "I think it's fun to scare myself into it," he says. "Just like it's fun to go ghost hunting, but I don't believe in ghosts either. I just want an experience to happen and nothing ever happens. I've never had a first-hand account with aliens, so no, I don't believe in them."
