did we mention that Sucker Punch is a musical, too? Snyder's influences stretched as far as Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge!, something you could tell from the abundance of red in the fantasy brothel scenes and his decision to bring Marius De Vries on board to work on some of the songs that the girls perform. During our visit, we got to watch one such dance number performed by Hudgens, which was quite a startling contrast to more footage we saw of her shooting her way through a trench full of German soldiers wearing gas masks.
During the visit, we got to see a lot of the concept art Snyder had put together to create the different worlds using a combination of the distinctive CG backgrounds from 300 and more practical sets. We got to see some of those sets including the lavishly-adorned theater (also clearly influenced by Baz Luhrmann) in which the girls perform, some of the equally elaborate brothel rooms including the High Roller Suite, as well as the early stages of the bullet train on which Snyder planned on shooting an amazing bit of action choreography which would require a great deal of planning and coordinating. We were shown some behind-the-scenes footage of what went into planning one of those amazing fight sequences, as well as the dozens of costumes the actresses would be wearing, each one related to the world they're in.
Snyder is shooting for a PG-13 rating with Sucker Punch, which may seem impossible considering how much of the movie takes place in a brothel and involves fantasy sequences of women in skimpy outfits beating people up, but that was the plan and we have this feeling he'll find a way to make it work.

CHUD sprach mit Zack Snyder über das Rating... [...] Snyder will be toning his movie - which had been previously described as a hard R - down, the director insists he can get away with what he wants in a PG-13. 'If you can make Taken PG-13, you can make this movie PG-13,' he told me. 'That's what I believe. Because it's more fantastic. No one really dies in the movie.'
He's got a point - there's plenty of violence in the Lord of the Rings films that would have gotten the films an R rating if it were humans being hewed to bits. Return of the King in particular seems to be right up on the edge of what's acceptable, and I imagine that edge is where Snyder will live with Sucker Punch.
'I think Sucker Punch is a smart movie,' he said. 'It absolutely is challenging, and it's fucking hardcore. [A]t the end she gets... it's dark! But it's fucking actiony like nobody's business. We hope the action we're creating is off the charts, and it's not stupid.'
That action, while it may be against fantasy creatures (or WWI soldiers, Snyder revealed. The imaginary worlds seem to be all over the place in a very cool way), is rooted in reality. Says Snyder, 'I like fight choreography and I like being able to see what's happening in action. When the girls are fighting, [like] they're on their way to kill a baby dragon, they've killed all of these orc-like creatures and they're entering a door [and] it's this classic, real Navy SEAL style room clearing. They have machine guns but they're fighting mythic creatures, impossible creatures. The hand to hand stuff is all brutal, because Damon [Caro] did all the [fights] in Bourne and it has that vibe to it.'
Empire meldet... With Watchmen safely premiered in both London and LA, and just minutes away from opening, director Zack Snyder has found time to cast his next film, Sucker Punch, and he's lined up an all-female cast (so far) with Mamma Mia!'s Amanda Seyfried set for the lead role. She'll be joined by Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone.
Set in the 1950s, Seyfried will play Babydoll, a girl confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who plans to have her lobotomised in five days. Fellow inmates would include Blondie (Hudgens*), Sweet Pea (Cornish), Rocket (Wood) and Amber (Stone).
To escape the pain, Babydoll retreats into a fantasy world (along with her companions) and there begins planning her escape before a "vile man" can rape her.
The fantasy world is described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns" by Snyder, who co-wrote the script with Steve Shibuya. It will apparently include dragons, B-52 bombers and brothels, an interesting mix. [...]
