'Sucker Punch' Stars Talk About Becoming 'Obsessed' With Intense Workouts

'We had Navy SEALs training us,' Emily Browning said of her co-stars' preparation for Zack Snyder's new film.

SAN DIEGO -- One movie that has created quite a bit of

buzz at San Diego Comic-Con -- thanks in large part to a

well-received sneak preview on Saturday (July 24) -- is Zack

Snyder's "Sucker Punch," which opens in March 2011 and which the director has described as "'Alice in Wonderland' with machine guns."

MTV News caught up with four of the movie's stars -- Vanessa

Hudgens, Emily Browning, Jamie Chung and Jena Malone -- and

chatted about the training they did for their intense action


"We probably at the beginning all felt like, oh my God, we don't look

like fighters," Browning said. "We're kind of all little girls. We

trained our asses off -- we worked really hard."

Browning went on to note that the training was a bit more intense than

a typical session at the gym. "We had Navy SEALs training us,"

Browning said. "We trained for three months, six hours a day. And we

got strong."

The actresses got so into training, they would crave workouts when

they didn't have any scheduled.

"If they weren't fighting [with] guns, they had withdrawal," Chung

revealed. "Jenna was always talking about it ... she was so obsessed."

Browning added, "If we didn't get to work out one day we'd be, like, shaking."

The actresses were also eager to mention their love and enthusiasm for

director Zack Snyder. Malone commended Snyder's enthusiasm and

collaborative spirit, and Browning said she'd happily sign onto

another Snyder film without even needing to see a script.
