"I already did the all-male cast with 300, so I'm doing the opposite end of the spectrum." Visionary director Zack Snyder's next feature film is an ass-kicking all-female extravaganza called Sucker Punch, about a girl named Baby Doll who, while in a mental institution, imagines an alternative reality to hide from the pain, and in that world, begins planning her escape. Starring as the lead will be Amanda Seyfried, first reported by IESB and confirmed today by Entertainment Weekly. Also joining the cast - Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Evan Rachel Wood, and Emma Stone. So how's that for one hell of a sexy line-up?
Warner Brothers has graciously given Zack Snyder a $100 million budget for Sucker Punch, so expect something pretty awesome, just like 300 and Watchmen. The four aforementioned actresses - Hudgens, Cornish, Rachel Wood, and Stone - are all fellow inmates who take on fantastical roles in the lead character's mind. Snyder, who co-wrote the script for this with Steve Shibuya, has described the fantasy world as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns," blending such elements as dragons, B-52 bombers and brothels. Production is schedule to begin in the fall for a October 8th, 2010 release date next year.
