Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Sophia Loren and Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson. An eye-popping cast under the direction of “Chicago’s” Rob Marshall. If there ever was an event musical it’s “Nine.”
Screaming of Oscar bait and almost guaranteed to win the Golden Globe for Best Picture Comedy or Musical (unless it’s a complete disaster), “Nine” is positioning itself as a sexy, theatrical and upscale prestige picture that can appeal to men and women of all sexual persuasions. Based on the Tony Award-winning musical, “Nine” is actually inspired by legendary Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini’s “8 1/2.” The current incarnation also has the distinction of being one of the last screenplays by Oscar-winner Anthony Minghella (“The English Patient.”)
