Zack Snyder Wants Amanda Seyfried For Sucker Punch
Zack Snyder has always seemed to be a dude who makes movies for dudes, never mind the glistening abs of 300 and what's rumored to be plenty of Dr. Manhattan penis in Watchmen. Actually, come to think of it, Snyder has always added something in there for the ladies, which may explain why his next project is going to be all ass-kicking females, all the time.
He's going right into production on Sucker Punch, an action movie described by IESB as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns." He told them a little bit about his plans for the project, including some surprising casting choices.
He confirmed, however vaguely, that he's trying to get Mamma Mia's Amanda Seyfried to play the lead, and also suggested that there are a lot of other cool anmes up for consideration. "Let's just say...I think we're looking at, like, what I would consider a lot of great, really great girls. Because it's all girls so it's like, yeah."
Snyder also claims, bizarrely, that he's never had the chance to make an action movie, despite the blood and screams of 300 and the previews of lots of kicks and punches in Watchmen. For Sucker Punch, he said, "We're just trying to make these action sequences just out of this - just off the frickin scale, planet.[...] I feel like there's huge potential there that I haven't really gotten to explore, so that's kind of what I am excited about."
