Director Zack Snyder ("Dawn of the Dead," "300," "Watchmen") recently suggested that he might deliver a PG-13 rated film for the first time in his career, but without softening the action of his upcoming "Sucker Punch." Now comes word that Disney star Vanessa Hudgens "will strip naked" for her role as a prostitute in the film, according to Metro UK.
Except that she doesn't actually say that. Her actual quoted words are: "I'm playing a character named Blondie and it's set in a brothel in the 1950s, so there's not a whole lot of clothes." From that, the publication surmises that she'll be naked.
More likely, she'll be dressed in revealing, sexy outfits that don't show as much as her leaked private photos did (which reportedly showed everything). Unless, of course, Snyder plans to shoot additional footage that can then be released as part of an "unrated" or "director's cut" version for DVD and Blu-ray, while keeping a PG-13 rating in mind for theaters.
"It'll be gun training, stunts, fighting and all that craziness. I can't wait. I'm so excited. I've wanted to do an action film for a while," Vanessa adds about her role. "I think this is my time to really step it up and get to grow up. It will be somewhat different with the content and a few more foul words but that's the biggest difference."
Playing a foul-mouthed hooker who dresses scantly is a vast distance away from her career with Disney on "High School Musical." I wonder what all the tween girls who idolize her will think of her role in "Sucker Punch."
Vanessa Hudgens will star alongside Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, and Jamie Chung. Described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns," "Sucker Punch" starts production this fall and aims for a March 2011 release date.
