Posted on 24 February 2009 by Quaid

Zack “Watchmen” Snyder is trying to get Mama Mia’s Amanda Seyfried in his next film entitled Sucker Punch.  

seyfriedThe movie is said to be an “Alice in Wonderland” type story about a girl in a mental institution.  Only difference between this and the classic tale?  Lots of Machine guns.

This sounds cool as hell.  The movie will have an $85 million budget and will begin shooting in June.  Thanks to IESB.net for the info.

Also, it seems Sean Penn is in talks to play the lead male role in Fair Game.  The film is based on the memoire of Valerie Plame Wilson.  The book tells the story of the ex-CIA agent, played by Naomi Watts, whose cover was blown by the Bush administration (allegedly) when her husband (Penn) began writing articles critiquing the administration for manipulating intelligence information to justify the war in Iraq.  All this according to DarkHorizons.com.

This could be either really good, or really bad, melodramatic, and preachy.  Fingers crossed for the former.
