The Entertainment Weekly Comic Con preview issue is starting to make its way out into the world and onto the beds of scanners everywhere. There were a half dozen Green Lantern photos from the mag yesterday, and today there’s the first real image from Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch.
Here you can see (l-r) Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Emily Browning, Scott Glenn, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. The film follows Emily Browning’s character, Babydoll, who is confined to a mental institution from which she fantastizes an alternate reality. Browning and the other girls seen here are all wards of the institution, and this shot is part of the fantasy reality, in which Browning is trying to find a handful of objects that will allow her to escape.
Snyder has said many times that the film will be a dark, violent fantasty full of guns, action and monsters, and this photo certainly suggests that he wasn’t exaggerating. We’ll know more when we see footage at Comic Con next week. Read More »

Michael Shannon (The Runaways, Jonah Hex) and Jamie Chung are in talks to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt in David Koepp‘s on-the-run chase thriller Premium Rush.
The story follows a 20-something-year-old bike messenger who somehow gets involved in a chase across New York City. And we’re not just talking about a little chase but big budget William Friedkin-style action sequences. Apparently a dirty cop is “desperate to get his hands” on an envelope the messenger received from Columbia University.
THR reports that Shannon would play the villain, “a deceptively affable cop with a violent temper”, and Chung would play Levitt’s ex-girlfriend, “a fellow daredevil bike messenger who helps him outwit the cop. ”

While promoting Sorority Row, actress Jamie Chung has been talking about Zack Snyder‘s upcoming film Sucker Punch, in which she is featured alongside Emily Browning, Jenna Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish and supporting players Carla Gugino and Jon Hamm. We know a few things about the film: Browning plays Baby Doll, a girl confined to a mental institution by her stepfather. She escapes into outlandish, violent fantasy to deal with her predicament. Chung gets a bit more specific, though, and her comments follow the break. Are they spoilers? Not really, if you’ve been reading what we’ve covered so far. Read More »
Zack Snyder has lost two more Sucker Punch cast members: Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone have both dropped out due to “scheduling conflicts”. This comes one month after it was announced that the film’s lead Amanda Seyfried was forced to leave the project, also due to “scheduling conflicts”. Am I the only person that finds it strange that half of the announced cast have been forced to drop out due the scheduling issues? The cast was announced before Watchmen‘s underperformed at the box office. And while I have absolutely no proof what-so-ever that the events are connected, my gut is telling me that they are.
Seyfried, star of Big Love, Mamma Mia, and Mean Girls was replaced with Emily Browning, whose credits top out with a bunch of crappy horror flicks (The Uninvited, Standed, Darkness Falls, Ghost Ship). And tonight Stone and Wood’s replacements were announced: Jamie Chung (Dragonball Evolution) and Jenna Malone (Into The Wild, Donnie Darko). Malone is a great catch. She’s definitely a talented and underused actress but it’s hard not to see a pattern: Warner Bros is trading down, casting considerably lesser known actresses which most likely will save them considerable cash on the budget side. Could it be that Warner Bros is concerned about the profitability of Snyder’s R-Rated $100 million fantasy film?
