Amanda Seyfried out of Zack Snyder's 'Sucker Punch'

Amanda Seyfried’s attempt to tackle some edgy theatrical material has been thwarted by scheduling issues. EW has learned that the actress, best known for her singing-and-dancing role in Mamma Mia, won’t be starring in Zack Snyder’s 1960s-set, R-rated action fantasy Sucker Punch for Warner Bros. Seyfried was offered the lead role of Baby Doll, a young woman who has been committed to an insane asylum and fantasizes about escaping with the help of her fellow inmates. But with shooting scheduled for the fall, HBO won’t release her from her Big Love commitment, which will be in the middle of filming its fourth season. No word yet on who Snyder will find as her replacement.

Seyfried is scheduled to complete her work on Chloe, in which she costars opposite Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore, this week. It’s unclear whether or not Neeson’s absence will prolong her schedule on the film. With Big Love concluding its third season Sunday night, Seyfried can be seen next in the Diablo Cody-penned horror film Jennifer’s Body, opposite Megan Fox.

    Can we all agree that he needs to call up Christina Ricci right now?

  • Nikki

    agreed Steven!

  • dave

    Steven’s right…get Christina Ricci on the phone!

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    Actually, I think they need to get the greatest American actress of our times, Ms. Vanessa Hudgens.

  • Bruno

    Well, since they can’t get “Lilly Kane”, it’s time they hire “Veronica Mars”. I’m sure Kristen Bell is willing to work with Zack Snyder.

  • lori

    what about some up and coming actresses like Nikki Reed (Thirteen),Adrianne Palicki (FNL, or Leighton Meester. Of course Kristen Bell would always be a good choice

    PeterBilt The Nature Boy, thanks for the laugh, Greatest actress of our times, Vanessa Hudgens??? lol lol lol
    BTW, Vanessa is already rumored to be in this but not the lead.

  • M

    I agree, Christina Ricci sounds good to take over.

  • s

    I was looking forward to seeing her in this but I’m sure Zack will find someone good to take over this role. Can’t wait to see Vanessa Hudgens and Evan Rachel Wood in this film.

  • pau

  • Tami

    I’m SOOOOOO glad Vanessa Hudgens is going to be in this movie. I really want to see this girl kick some butt.
