Chi Chi will go from fighting green-skinned alien dudes who wants to destroy the world to starring in Zack Snyder’s all-girl fantasy flick “Sucker Punch”. Jamie Chung, who co-starred as Chi Chi in the ill-fated “Dragonball: Evolution” has joined the ever-revolving door that is the “Sucker Punch” cast along with Jena Malone. The two lasses join a cast that currently counts among its members Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish. Before that, Emma Stone had been in the cast, but she’ll now be replaced by Chung. Malone, meanwhile, will take over the role formerly attached to Evan Rachel Wood.
THR says Chung (pictured, below) will play Amber, a country girl with a big heart, while Malone (pictured, top left) will play Cornish’s younger sister. Like everyone else in the film, the two girls will be inmates at a mental instituion.
Browning will star as a girl who is 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. It’s not as ludicrous as it sounds. Oh who are we kidding. This is Zack Snyder. It sounds exactly as ludicrous as it is.
Much slow motion all-girl showering scenes ensue. One hopes.
