OK, here is the interesting Hollywood stuff from the famous Zack Snyder, director of musclebound movie 300. Probably after a real manly movie with tough warriors under lead of Gerald Butler, Zack decided to show some of his sexy dreams and share it with everybody.
He hired Damon Caro !AGAIN! as a fighting coordinator, who after 300 worked on Never Back Down, Bourne Ultimatum, Die Hard 4.0, and asked to teach five sexy girls (Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung) to use sword and some mano-a-mano technique to fight demons, samurais and other creature in their fantasy world. Damon took Ryan Watson (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 300, Ultraviolet) as a co-fight choreographer and they started enjoy every day of sets.
Development began in March 2007. The script, which was penned by Snyder and Shibuya, was finalized in five years and was actually planned to be made first before Watchmen. Sucker Punch is scheduled to be released in both conventional and IMAX theatres on March 25, 2011.
Plot: “Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will at Lennox House for the Mentally Insane, but Baby-Doll has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls – the outspoken Rocket, the street-smart Blondie, the fiercely loyal Amber and the reluctant Sweet Pea – to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue, Madam Gorski and the High Roller. Led by Baby-Doll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurai to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of Wiseman, their unbelievable journey – if they succeed – will set them free.
