Vanessa Hudgens broke her "High School Musical" mold with this year's "Sucker Punch," and now she'll branch out even further by standing on "Frozen Ground."
Deadline reports that the actress has been cast opposite Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in the thriller based on Alaska's most notorious serial predator, Robert Hansen, who abducted and murdered over 24 women over 12 years. Hudgens will play the one victim who escaped. Cage plays the Alaskan State Trooper who works to bring Hansen (Cusack) to justice.
