Zack Snyder is putting together an all-female cast for his next project ‘Sucker Punch.’
Amanda Seyfried in negotiations to for the lead role, while Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Evan Rachel Wood & Emma Stone are in talks to costar in the action fantasy, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Set in the 1950s, ‘Sucker Punch’ follows a girl who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.
Snyder described the fantasy world as ”Alice in Wonderland’ with machine guns,’ blending such elements as dragons, B-52 bombers and brothels.
Seyfried would play Babydoll, the institutionalized girl.
The rest would play her fellow inmates who also travel into the alternate reality. Hudgens would play a character named Blondie, Cornish would play Sweet Pea, Wood would play Rocket and Stone would play Amber.
