Chung and Malone Set for Snyder’s Sucker Punch!


Jamie Chung and Jena Malone are replacing Emma Stone and Evan Rachel Wood, respectively, in director Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch!.

The two join Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish in the action fantasy, which Snyder is also producing with his Cruel & Unusual Films partner and wife, Deborah Snyder.

Set in the 1950s, the film centers on a girl confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternate reality to hide from the pain and in that world begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out.

Chung plays Amber, a country girl with a big heart, while Malone plays Cornish’s younger sister. Both characters are inmates.
