It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Zack Snyder‘s upcoming all girl, ass-kicking fest, Sucker Punch. The last time I checked they were playing a serious game of shuffle board with it’s actors. According to Yahoo, we can expect another full blooded female to join the cast in the form of Watchmen alumni, Carla Gugino. The cast currently includes Emily Browning, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Abbie Cornish.
Set in the 1950′s, Sucker Punch is about a young girl committed to an insane asylum, who dreams of escaping with the help of her fellow inmates. The leader of the pack is Baby Doll (Browning), a girl who’s step-father plans on having her lobotomized in five days. Gugino will star in the role of Mrs. Schultz, one of the adults at the institution. Since the film will have a pretty heavy dose of action, the primary actresses are currently in martial arts training. Sucker Punch is expected to start shooting this fall in Vancouver.
I love how the description of Gugino’s character is kept so vague. She could be a psycho too for all we know! It would be cool to see her get in on some of the martial arts action as well. We didn’t really get to see much of it in Watchmen.
What do you think about Carla Gugino joining the cast of Sucker Punch?
