Abbie Cornish: Zack Snyder is an actor's dream
Cornish stars in Snyder's Sucker Punch, which is currently in UK cinemas.
The 28-year-old plays a Sweet Pea in the film, which focuses on a young girl called Baby Doll (Emily Browning) who has been sent to a psychiatry facility by her abusive stepfather.
While there, she retreats into her own mind as a coping method and comes up with a plan to escape.
Speaking to The Australian, the actress said Synder is up to date with the latest developments in technology.
"He's actually an actor's dream as a director. Not only is he a great filmmaker and incredibly technically inclined, he's also a filmmaking nerd in a way," she explained.
Cornish, who recently starred in Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, will next be seen in W.E, which tells the story of King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
It also stars Andrea Riseborough and James D'Arcy.
