Scott Glenn is in Sucker Punch

Posted by LiveFor on September 18, 2009

scott_glenn.jpg-4128Scott Glenn, a favourite actor of mine since his storming turn as astronaut Alan Shepherd in The Right Stuff, has signed on for Zack Snyder’s upcoming action drama, Sucker Punch!, which co-stars Jon Hamm, Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Oscar Isaac and Carla Gugino.

According to Variety, the film is set in the 1950s, and revolves around Baby Doll, a girl who creates an alternate reality to escape the every-day world after her stepfather commits her to a mental hospital with plans to have her lobotomized. Glenn will play a mentor and guide to Baby Doll and the other girls in the asylum.

No production date has been set.

Still very intrigued about this film. Can’t wait to see some actual concept art or footage from it.

Carla Gugino joins Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch

Posted by LiveFor on August 4, 2009

carla-gugino-32Carla Gugino has been cast in Sucker Punch, the action fantasy Zack Snyder is directing for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures according to  THR. This is the film that Snyder described as Alice in Wonderland with Machine Guns

Gugino joins Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, and Abbie Cornish star in the 1950s-set tale of a girl (Browning) confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. She and her friends enter an alternate reality where they begin planning an escape.

Gugino is playing Mrs. Schultz, an adult figure in the institution.

Snyder, who wrote the script, is producing with his Cruel & Unusual Films partner, wife Deborah Snyder.

The actors are currently in fight training, and the studio is readying a fall shoot in Vancouver.

Gugino was one of the stars of Snyder’s “Watchmen,” portraying the 1950s version of Silk Spectre. She next stars in indie sports drama “Our Lady of Victory.”

This is certainly an intriguing sounding film. Previous reports have mentioned Dragons, brothels, bomber planes and other bizarre things. Some art work from the film was recently released.

Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch loses a couple more actors but gets Chung and Malone

Posted by LiveFor on April 21, 2009

Jamie Chung (Dragonball Evolution) and Jena Malone (Donnie Darko, Into the Wild, The Ruins) are set to topline Sucker Punch, Zack Snyder’s all-female action fantasy for Warner Bros.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chung and Malone join Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish in the film, which Snyder is directing and producing with his Cruel & Unusual Films partner, wife Deborah Snyder.

Set in the 1950s, Sucker Punch centers on a girl confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternate reality to hide from the pain and in that world begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out.

Several actors have been in talks and negotiations to star in the movie, including Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia), Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone, but have fallen away because of scheduling conflicts (surely their schedules were known when they first said they could do it?)

Chung, replacing Stone, plays Amber, a country girl with a big heart. Malone, taking Wood’s part, plays Cornish’s younger sister. Both characters are inmates.

All seems a bit strange having people who had been confirmed to take part dropping out like this. One I could understand, but now three of the original line-up have changed. I wonder if it is anything to do with Watchmen’s underperformance at the box office? I wouldn’t be surprised if Vanessa Hudgens is the next to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

I’m still looking forward to this film though as I have enjoyed Snyder’s comic book adaptions and it will be interesting to see him do something a bit more original.
