Nine (dir:Marshall)Kidman, Day-Lewis, Hudson, Cruz, Cotillard more. Musical 2009

Plot (acording to imdb)
Nine is a musical following a film director named Guido Contini, who is in his middle age. He is trying to complete his next film. His main problem is that he has too many women in his life. Luisa, his wife, Carla his sexy mistress, and Claudia, his muse and protege.

cast:
Nicole Kidman ... Claudia
Daniel Day-Lewis ... Guido Contini
Kate Hudson ... Stephanie
Penélope Cruz ... Carla
Judi Dench ... Liliane La Fleur
Marion Cotillard ... Luisa Contini
Sophia Loren ... Mamma
Stacy Ferguson ... Saraghina
Giuseppe Spitaleri ... Young Guido

This has potential to be amazing, 4 oscar winners, Daniel Day Lewis singing, and Rob Marshall directing

I hate Chicago. I love Daniel Day-Lewis.

Funny how Javier Bardem was originally cast in the Day-Lewis role, that Daniel Plainview drank Anton Chigurh's milkshake. I hope, however, that he drinks the milkshakes of Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz. Judi Dench...not so much.

roommate: She's in this movie Nine that's coming out soon. I think she has a big role.
me: oh really? Whats it about.
roommate: Not sure. I know its a musical from the guy that did Chicago. Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson are in it too.
me: sounds like shit.
roommate: Oh yeah and Daniel Day Lewis is in it.
me: where can we get advance tickets?

Any chance the title is a reference to Fellini's 8 1/2?

The plot seems familiar...

Actor Daniel Day-Lewis is so determined to stay in character for his upcoming role in Nine - he can't stop speaking Italian.

The Oscar-winner plays lady-loving director Guido Contini in the movie musical, opposite a star-studded cast including Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren and Penelope Cruz.

And he's left his famous co-stars tongue tied, refusing to speak anything but his character's native language to those on set.

A source tells the New York Daily News, "He's always waving his arms and telling the chef to whip up some pasta."


I've read other things that Lewis always ends up staying in character for his movies. I imagine it must of been a pain in the ass on the set of "my left foot".

That is so odd to see Day-Lewis in a film like this. I must admit..wow. Cruz looks awesome...

Looks half movie, half lingerie/perfume ad. In otherwords, just like Chicago.

Four Oscar winners? Try six.

I know that Nicole can sing, but the rest (?!), that's surprising!

Re: Nine (dir:Marshall)Kidman, Day-Lewis, Hudson, Cruz, Cotillard more. Musical 2009

I've been involved with this as a stage musical. Moreso than most musicals, it really needs the right director to be something wondrous rather than a complete turd... Yes, it's based on 8 1/2. On stage the main cast consists of the lead guy, a child version of himself, and about a dozen women--his wife, his mistress, his publicist, his mother, etc.

It *is* a rather plotless "lingerie musical" like Chicago, but with a very different feel--it's got the Italian sentimenal nostalgia vibe of, say, Amacord, rather than the sometimes overbearing/cheap cynicism of the Fosse/Chicago world...

DDL will have to sing a *lot*, his character has at least 5 or 6 songs in the stage version, and does require one hell of an actor/singer since it's the story of his mental breakdown... Raul Julia originated it on B'way. Jonathan Pryce tore up a London revival in the mid-90's, and Antonio Bandaras starred in a B'way revival in 2003. I'm hoping it's been done right--if so it could be a much better movie than Chicago...
