Zack Snyder’s Next Movie = Babefest

Published 5 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 3:06 pm,

After Zack Snyder is done with Watchmen his next project is going to be a $100 million action/fantasy called Sucker Punch. It seems that the Warner Bros.-produced 1960s set film will have an all female cast, with several actresses already in talks to appear in the film.

Amanda Seyfried (Jennifer’s Body, Mama Mia) is in talks to play the lead character of Baby Doll, with Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss), Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler, Across The Universe), and Emma Stone (Superbad) also being looked at for suppporting roles.

The plot synopsis for the film is pretty out there:

Sucker Punch tells the story of a girl named Baby Doll who is confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While imprisoned, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain. In this fantasy world, where she needs to steal five objects to help her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.

Wow, that’s not exactly the type of film that comes to mind when the term “all female cast” gets thrown around. However I must say it sounds like a very cool idea, certainly a unique one anyway. And much like my beloved The Descent, the all female cast is sure to make it stand out amongst other movies.

As Snyder says himself - “I already did the all-male cast with 300, so I’m doing the opposite end of the spectrum.”

Well, apart from the Queen, Zack, but we get what you’re saying…

What surprises about this flick is the pretty hefty $100 million dollar budget it has. I mean it’s not like 300 or Watchmen where Snyder has a much loved original source material to work off of. This is a script written originally by him, so the only reason I can think WB would risk that money is because of the success of 300.

However I wonder if that budget will stay has high as it is if Watchmen fails to do as well as the studio is hoping…

Sucker Punch, which is to be produced by Snyder and his wife Deborah, is set to start principal photography late this year and an October 8th 2010 release date has been already been announced by WB.

  1. out of all of those, the chick on the top row in the middle is the hottest to me.

  2. agree. Vanessa Hudgens is the hottest one. Can’t wait to see her kicking some ass.

  3. Vanessa Hudgens needs to play the lead role! Seeing her go crazy and chase by a vile man to get “deflowered”, can sure break her away from those Disney movies!

  4. can’t wait to see a former disney girl kick ass. vanessa hudgens is hot

  5. Am I the only one on this site who doesn’t know who the heck Vanessa Hudgens is? I guess shes the brunette at the top middle but I have never seen her in film. All the women look good; except for the one on the bottom right. Woooof!! :-)

  6. Sorry guys, Amanda is the absolute hottest on this list.

    Have you forgotten her line in ‘Mean Girls’ where she says innocently, “..I can fit my whole fist in my mouth”

    Sheeeesh!

  7. Vanessa is gorgeous but is Evan Rachel Wood the only real actress here to actually have any chops? I had to sit through Mamma Mia with my wife (when she asked me why I wasn’t laughing I told her it was because I didn’t have ovaries) and Seyfreid is awful..bad…horrible…

    @ John .. She is the hot chick from High School Musical fame… My neice loves that crap…I only have sons and I pray to all that’s holy that they never go for this type of “entertainment”…

  8. Amanda Seyfried is the best actress in this whole cast hands down!….Vanessa Hudgens…uhm you have to be kidding me she can’t act at all….i am going to give her a chance in this one…but i doubt she will be any good
    other than that it seems pretty good :)

  9. I have to sat all of them are…ok actresses. But the one I would most like to see in a Zack Snyder film is Vanessa Hudgens. Not because she’s hot or anything ,even through she is, but because she doesn’t need to be put in the type casting category.
