Everyone scrambled to get up this cool logo from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, which was printed on t-shirts given away at SDCC. I tried to wait, because I know how anal the concept artist, Alex Pardee, is about his finished product — I mean, the guy sleeps four hours a day. Well he didn’t let me down. Today, he unveiled an official version of the image seen on the tee. Check it out below.
Pardee has been working on an animated feature for two years now called Chadam, which is in development at Warner Brothers where Snyder released Watchmen so I’m sure that’s how their partnership started. Described as Alice In Wonderland with machine guns, the story follows a young girl institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. Sucker Punch stars Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, and Jamie Chung.
Snyder is currently working on the animated feature, Guardians Of Ga’Hoole to be released in 2010.

I swear, Neil Patrick Harris may have made the best comeback from childhood fame I’ve ever seen. From his hilarious roles in the Harold & Kumar films, to his dayjob on How I Met Your Mother, to his geek star turn in Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible, Mr. Harris has been consistently hilarious. It was announced today that he had signed on for two new films.
The first, Beastly, which co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Mary-Kate Olsen. Harris is playing a blind tutor who helps and bonds with a teen (Alex Pettyfer) who is shellshocked from being turned into a hideous young man. In the second film, The Best And The Brightest, Harris plays one half of a couple from Delaware who move to New York’s Upper East Side and enter the world of the city’s private kindergartens. Bonnie Somerville (NYPD Blue, Kitchen Confidential) is also cast as the class-aware wife in the film, which co-stars Amy Sedaris (SNL, Strangers With Candy).
