Zack Snyder‘s proposed “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns” project, entitled “Sucker Punch”, aims to kick off filming in the Fall of 2009 in Vancouver.
Talking with Collider, Snyder says the film takes place in the late 60’s and “it’s about a girl that’s been committed to an insane asylum and she fantasizes that she can escape and she has these crazy adventures in her mind where she goes into the past and into the future.”
He adds that it’s a hardcore action film that’s “definitely rated R”. Snyder and Steve Shibuya penned the script based off a short story.
Snyder’s adaptation of Alan Moore’s acclaimed graphic novel “Watchmen” hits theaters in two weeks and he’s been in and out of Sydney for the past few months working on his animated project “Guardians of Ga’Hoole”.
