Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench are in talks to join Rob Marshall’s adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway musical “Nine” for The Weinstein Company says The Hollywood Reporter.
The 1982 show, itself an adaptation of Federico Fellini’s autobiographical opus “8 1/2,” revolves around a film director (Javier Bardem) juggling the demands of several women in his life.
Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard and Sophia Loren also star. The project will mark Kidman’s first post-pregnancy project as her baby is due this Summer.
Shooting was scheduled to begin in March but was postponed due to script issues. The film is now tentatively scheduled for a September start.
