Ashley Tisdale climbs Upstairs

High School Musical co-star joins comedy

Those who’ve loved – and, most likely, the boyfriends/parents who’ve suffered through – both High School Musical outings will no doubt recognise Ashley Tisdale as snarky, stuck-up starlet wannabe Sharpay Evans.

While she’s sticking with the warbling tween franchise, she’s also nabbed a role in 20th Century Fox’s new adventure comedy They Came From Upstairs. John Schultz is the man behind the camera for the comedy adventure, which finds a pack of teens teaming up to fight off aliens who have rather rudely invaded their holiday home.

It kicks off shooting in New Zealand at the end of the month. You can get more details at The Hollywood Reporter.
