Carla Gugino, in a move to make a certain kind of geek near-faint with delight, has signed up to join Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch - playing a dual role of nurse and brothel madam.

Yes, the erstwhile Silk Spectre will rejoin her **Watchmen **director for his next film, which sees a girl (Emily Browning) consigned to an insane asylum in 1960s and threatened with lobotomy. She escapes into a fantasy world, taking her fellow inmates with her (Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone). Gugino will play a nurse in the asylum, and a brothel owner in the fantastical reality, but we don't know yet if she's a goodie, baddie, neither or both.

Shooting starts in September, although the cast have already begun fight training in preparation for the industrial amounts of ass they plan to kick.
