Emily Browning, the Australian actress who recently starred in the thriller The Uninvited, has nabbed the plum lead role in Zack Snyder's forthcoming fantasy drama Sucker Punch. Browning is taking over for Amanda Seyfried, who was originally offered the role but was unable to follow through.
The film centers on a girl in a mental institution who is forced to create an alternate reality in order to survive. She is surrounded by a bunch of fellow inmates who become her friends. The production is scheduled to begin in September. Warner Bros. will distribute the film.
Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, and Evan Rachel Wood have already been cast in the film.
