Kate Hudson (“Almost Famous,” “Fool’s Gold”) will join the cast of “Nine”, Rob Marshall’s adaptation of the Tony Award Winning Broadway musical for The Weinstein Company.
Daniel Day-Lewis plays world famous film director Guido Contini as he prepares his latest picture and balances the numerous women in his life played by Hudson and the previously announced Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren and Penélope Cruz.
Michael Tolkin and the late Anthony Minghella adapted the script from Maury Yeston’s work on the original Tony Award-winning 1982 Broadway production.
Hudson specifically plays the role Stephanie, a young American fashion reporter from Vogue working in Italy. Yeston himself has created a new song specifically for her.
The film is scheduled to begin shooting in the UK on October 10th.
