Zac Efron really wants to be in girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens's upcoming action flick, Sucker Punch, because he's dying to work with director Zach Snyder.

There's just one thing getting in the way: Zac's manhood...

"I think it's an all-girl movie," Efron told me backstage at the MTV Movie Awards right after picking up the Golden Popcorn for Best Male Performance for his work in High School Musical 3: Senior Year. "But if there's any way to be in that film, I'd do it. I'd play a girl if I had to."

Hudgens, meanwhile, tells me she's hoping to channel some Angelina Jolie for her action-packed work in Sucker Punch.

"I'm so stoked about it," she said. "I kept telling everyone, 'I want to do an action film.' But they were like, 'Maybe in a few years.' So I'm like, 'Ha, in your face. I am doing one now!'"

Hudgens will shoot Sucker Punch after completing Beastly, which she starts filming this week in Montreal.

Meanwhile, her flick Bandslam hits theaters Aug. 14. "It means a lot to me," she said. "I get to play a different character who is a lot darker and very deadpan throughout the whole thing."
