Hamm joins Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish and Carla Gugino in the 1950s-set tale of a girl (Browning) confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. She and her friends enter an alternate reality where they begin planning an escape.
Details of Hamm’s character are being kept under wraps, other than the name of his character: High Roller.
Sucker Punch is an action fantasy from the mind of Zack Synder, of 300 and Watchmen previously. Snyder will both write and direct as well as produce with his Cruel & Unusual Films partner, wife Deborah Snyder.
After the third season premiere of AMC’s Mad Men attracted 2.8 million viewers, Hamm is definitely living the high life. In September he’ll venture to Boston to shoot The Town, directed by Ben Affleck, before bracing himself for a Sucker Punch.
