Carla Gugino

After working with director Zack Snyder on last year’s comic adaptation Watchmen, the generally sexy Carla Gugino is signing on to the director’s next project, an original piece of work entitled Sucker Punch.

The film is a 1950s-set story of a girl (Emily Browning) confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. She and her friends — played by Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish — enter an alternate reality where they plan their escape.

Gugino will play Mrs. Shultz, an adult figure within the mental institution.

I’m not sure about you, but I just had a little flash of Carla Gugino in a nurse’s uniform — and as a man, that moves me. As well, Gugino is a talented actress. If you just look at Watchmen, you wouldn’t know it. But go to her performance in Women in Trouble, which hits theaters later this year, and you’ll see that Ms. Gugino is one talented lady. Perhaps she’ll kick some ass in Sucker Punch. If not, she might be the only one, as the rest of the cast is currently in fight training in anticipation of the film’s fall shoot in Vancouver.

Sucker Punch is currently scheduled for a March 25, 2011 release.
