Zack Snyder Promises You A Sucker Punch

Zack Snyder has announced yet another future project, this one called a very unusal action film called Sucker Punch.

Think Joanne Greenberg's I Never Promised You a Rose Garden pumped full of Blade 2 style action sequences, and you'll be half way there, I imagine.

The Hollywood Reporter's description of the premise goes a little something like:

Set in the 1950's, Punch follows 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 alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.

Snyder namechecked Alice in Wonderland, of course, and let us know we can expect to see B-52 Bombers, dragons and brothels popping up.

It won't exactly be The Defective Detective, I can promise you that much, but if Snyder can behave himself and show the kind of discipline demonstrated in sections of Dawn of the Dead, then Sucker Punch could certainly be something to look forward to.
