George Clooney, Javier Bardem, Antonio Banderas, Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renée Zellweger.

Sounds like the biggest all star cast in history? Well it's a dream that studio maven Harvey Weinstein hopes will come true.

Talking with The New York Post, Weinstein revealed that he is thinking about all these people to fill the ten key roles, six female and four male, in his upcoming production of the 1982 Tony-winning musical "Nine."

'We'll figure it out. There are roles for six women in the movie who have to be beautiful and sing and dance . . . it's a terrible assignment to cast this" joked Weinstein.

Rob Marshall ("Chicago") is set to direct the feature which is aiming for a late 2008 or 2009 release.
