Zack Snyder continues to fill out
roles in Sucker Punch,
which has undergone several casting changes since it was first announced.
Jena Malone and
Jamie Chung, an alumni of MTV's
The Real World, have been cast in the all-female action fantasy, which is in the Warner Bros. system.
Snyder and his wife Deborah Snyder will both produce the film, which concerns a young girl sentenced to an asylum by her evil stepfather who is intent on giving her a lobotomy. She needs to steal five objects in order to escape and develops an alternate mental reality to escape her pain. Chung is replacing the previously cast Emma Stone, while Malone is taking over for Evan Rachel Wood, both of whom exited the film due to scheduling conflicts. Malone and Chung will play inmates who befriend the lead character.
