Judi Dench And Nicole Kidman In Talks For "Nine"

According to EW.com (taken from Hollywood Reporter), Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench are in talks for Rob Marshall's film adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway musical Nine. They would join Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, and Sophia Loren in the movie based on the 1982 stage production, which was inspired by Federico Fellini's autobiographical film 8 1/2.

The story is about a film director (Bardem), suffering a creative block as he juggles the numerous women in his life. The Weinstein Co. project was supposed to start production in March but the start date has been pushed back to September. Kidman is due to have a baby over the summer, and the hope is she'll have enough maternity leave before that start date. Kidman has previously shown her skills as a singer and dancer in Moulin Rouge, and
Dench played Sally Bowles in the original London production of the musical Cabaret in 1968. She also won the Oliver Award for best actress in a musical in 1995 for her role in a revival of A Little Night Music.


  1. Wow, I love Rob Marshall's films. and this sounds like it's going to be such a great movie! Especially with all the great cast in it! English star Judi Dench, Australian star Nicole Kidman, Spanish stars Javier Bardem & Penelope Cruz, French star Marion Cotillard, and Italian star Sophia Loren! And might I add that 5 of them are Oscar winners! Penelope was only nominated. :)
