Vanessa Hudgens Expands on Her "Kick-Butt" Moments in Sucker Punch
Posted 03.25.10 by Ryan
Vanessa Hudgens is looking to overhaul her image in director Zack Snyder's upcoming Sucker Punch, which has been described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns." Snyder previously revealed that Hudgens will be "shooting machine guns, fighting, [and] beating the s**t out of people" in the movie, all of which should bring out a different side of the High School Musical actress.
Hudgens told MTV that she's "excited" about the movie because she gets to "be an extreme badass and kick butt" especially now that the movie will be in 3-D.
I think it might be [coming out in 3-D] ... actually, we didn't shoot it for 3-D, and I just found out the other day and I cannot be more thrilled. I'm just excited to know that when I throw my tomahawk, it's gonna be right in your face.
Hudgens is playing an institutionalized woman named Blondie in Sucker Punch, where another woman (Emily Browning) enters a dream world to hatch an escape plan. It's there (we imagine) that Hudgens gets to do all her "butt-kicking" in what seems to be several scenes, considering that Hudgens could not pick a favorite.
There were so many [scenes that I love]. I get to shoot a .50-cal gun, which is a gun that's on the back of a tank that they use in the Army. It's intense. It's just the most thrilling thing a person can ever do is shoot that gun.
Hudgens made no mention on whether she will be called upon to sing in the movie, considering that Sucker Punch — aside from being a action movie filled with tomahawks and .50-cal guns — is also apparently part-musical.
