LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Carla Gugino has been cast in "Sucker Punch," an action fantasy from "Watchmen" director Zack Snyder.

The 1950s-set tale follows a girl (Emily Browning) confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. She and her friends enter an alternate reality where they begin planning an escape. Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish co-star.

The actors are currently in fight training for the Warner Bros. project ahead of a fall shoot in Vancouver.

Gugino was one of the stars of Snyder's "Watchmen," portraying the 1950s version of Silk Spectre. She next stars in indie sports drama "Our Lady of Victory."
