Key art for new film COPSHOP starring Gerard Butler, Frank Grillo, and Alexis Louder

Ice Cream Convos had the pleasure of chatting with Alexis Louder, the breakout star of Joe Carnahan’s new action-crime-thriller, COPSHOP.

Alexis plays the role of Valerie Young, a former Army medic, who is now a gunslinging rookie cop with an insatiable thirst for justice.

Valerie finds herself in the crosshairs of some top level tomfoolery when a wily con artist (Frank Grillo) devises a scheme to hide out from a lethal assassin (Gerard Butler) inside of the small-town police station where she works.

When the hitman turns up at the precinct, all hell breaks loose and Valerie is willing and ready to walk through the fire in the name of justice.

Watch below as Alexis gives us the scoop on her role and how she prepared for it.

If you need a reason to see this film – I’ll give you one: Alexis Louder.

She’s incredibly talented, beautiful, and she absolutely smokes this role!
