Chung, Malone Join “Sucker Punch”

Jamie Chung and Jena Malone will replace Emma Stone and Evan Rachel Wood in Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch!” says The Hollywood Reporter.

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.

Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish also star. Chung plays Amber, a country girl with a big heart, while Malone plays Cornish’s younger sister.

Snyder and his wife Deborah are producing.
