Zack Snyder gathers his Sucker Punch cast

Abbie Cornish and Evan Rachel Wood among the names

Zack Snyder has begun reaching out to actresses to star in Sucker Punch, with Abbie Cornish, Evan Rachel Wood, Emma Stone and Vanessa Hudgens all in talks to nab roles.

Amanda Seyfried is, as previously reported, close to nabbing the lead role as a woman confined to a mental institution in the 1950s by her evil stepfather.

She conjures up an alternative reality where she can escape the pain of her bleak environment and the vile man who plans to assault her.

Snyder’s concept – which he wrote with Steve Shibuya – is Alice In Wonderland with weapons and R-rated, claret spilling fight scenes.

And we now know that dragons, B-52 bombers and brothels will be involved.

Sounds fun, right? Those are the usual elements for a totalfilm.com Saturday night….
