Vanessa Hudgens Gets Sucker Punched

Vanessa Hudgens Gets Sucker Punched

Vanessa Hudgens will be hopping from one side of Canada to the other this year as she’ll soon be joining Emily Browning and Abbie Cornish in Vancouver to film Sucker Punch.

The 20-year-old actress, who’s currently in Montreal filming Beastly with hunk Alex Pettyfer, dished to MTV that she couldn’t be more thrilled with the role of Blondie.

Vanessa shared, “I’m extremely excited. When I read about the project I was like, ‘That’d be great, but its not going to happen’…and now it actually is!”

Director Zack Snyder is equally as thrilled that Vanessa is going to be in his movie. He told InStyle UK, “She understood immediately what I was trying to do with the movie and has the acting chops to pull it off; her dancing background gives her the physicality to be an action star; and let’s face it, she is also beautiful.”

Sucker Punch is the story of young girl, Baby Doll (Browning) who is institutionalized by an abusive stepfather. In order to survive in this new setting, the girl retreats into a fantasy world of her own creation. It all seems innocent — if exceedingly dark — enough, until the imaginary place becomes a tool which she uses to plan an escape. Jena Malone and Jamie Chung also star.

    omg, we havent seen her for awhile!! so happy to finally see her face again! =D

  • mime

    that’s so exciting 4 her!!! She’ll do fantastic. Its good that she is branching out and doing more mature films.

  • humble

    Great to see that she is now being noticed for her acting, she’ll do great in this movie more matured and focused on her acting abilities.
    Great Job Vanessa, you never cease to amaze all of you fans. It’s also great that she is moving up in Hollywood the good old fashion way, the hard way and not throwing herself to anyone just to get noticed.

  • Karen

    This is really going to be different for Vanessa. I think it is really great. She will have HSM, Bandslam, Beastly, then Sucker Punch. It will be a wide-range of movie types which can only help her career.

    @dundies:

    I was just about to post this link and here it is! lol

    What would you suggest she say?
    Do you know anything about the movie?the character?
    didnt think so

    Anyway more importantly I cant wait for this movie?

  • Laura

  • sweetnessa

    i’m so excited !!!!!!!!!

  • awurbii

    @dundies:

    If you actually took sometime to think about it you would realise that she is not allowed to say much about the film. They have to keep it under wraps. Think a little harder before you post.

  • mandy

    GO VANESSAAAA!! <3333333333333

  • suzy

    I love the fact that she auditioned and she actually got the role and was the 1st choice Actress for her role.

  • star

    @Laura:

    She has had the highlights for about a week now, I think she needed them for Beastly – Lindy has red-brown hair I think.

  • zvlover

    @Laura: i dont think those are highlights…i think thats just her natural hair!!!

  • Katty

    I can’t wait for all her movies. She’s going to be great.

    Vanessa is very brave.she likes to try differentes characters,althought that could get a bad criticisms for her.
    Waiting for Beastly and Sucker Punch!!!!
    I wish Zanessa will get some movie together soon.

  • http://EONLINE.COM dans

    Please vote Vanessa on TCA.
    And Zanessa too.

  • heat.

    I adore her highlights, they are so pretty.

    I love how excited she is for this. And know it’s a challenging and will be pushed to her limits to do so. Zack really sees something in her, her first choice for the character. I can’t wait for production to start.

  • Hollywood fan

    @suzy (#19). I don’t think Vanessa audition for Sucker Punch. The role is offered to her by the director and producer.

  • anonymous

    i actually want to watch that sucker punch movie!

  • masbonita

    I ADORE V !!!! Don’t forget to vote . Can’t wait to see more pictures from the set of Beastly .

  • istar

    im really happy with her Sucker Punch choice. im glad people are noticing her as a great actor… she deserves to get noticed :D

    cuz i i can’t see the video (because i live in the UK) – does she mention that she’ll be hopping from one side of canada to the other?

  • http://www.hotmail.com jenny

    DO NOT WANT TO THINK THAT I AM SO Pessimism I say

    hope that ZAC EFRON IS THE CHANCE TO SEE THE FILM OF VANESSA BEASTLY AND SUCKER PUNCH, in accompanying PREMIERES AND SUPPORT .. AS MUCH TO SEE THE FILMS OF VANESSA BEASTLY 2010 AND SUCKER PUNCH 2011
    HOW LONG it will last BELIEVE THE RELATIONSHIP OF ZAC AND VANESSA

    @Hollywood fan:

    They all auditioned for all the roles. The director offered the particular roles to the five girls he thought were best in those roles. So she was his first choice for Blondie.

    This is great news because this was not just handed to her just because she has a name or is gorgeous, she went in there and earned that role for herself.

    That’s why Zack Snyder told InStyle UK that she had the acting chops to pull it off, he’s seen what she can do first hand.

    I’m so stoked for her. This movie will take her to a totally different level and put her in a different league.

  • zanessa4life

    she’s SO beautiful!o.o

  • Hollister

    @jenny:

    HUH??
    Im not trying to be rude but you always ask questions and id really like to answer them but i can never understand what you write?

  • http://www.hotmail.com jenny

    I can explain how the classification is a PG-13 film in U.S.

  • http://www.hotmail.com jenny

    this is what he saysvanessa of his character BLONDI

    I’m playing Blondie. It’s pretty dark Persönlichlkeit. It is difficult to implement. And it’s just really exciting. It is quite difficult to make a lot of crazy and sexy women showing what they can do. I’m very excited. I love training, and lead us pretty hard on it. I do things I never had vorgestelllt every time I go to. So I am very excited. Yes, there are many weapons in question. girls with weapons, but it sounds cool?

    it is will be a film with a high tone sensuality will be very hot

  • http://www.rr.com Malee

    I really want to go see that movie!
    sadly it’s rated R….
    :(

  • http://www.rr.com Malee

    Well, actually i don’t really know th rating…
    Some say it’s rated R and others say it’s rated PG-13?
    I’m pretty sure it’s PG-13 though….
