Day-Lewis counts Nine?

05.14.2008
Rob Marshall's all-star musical NINE lost one recent Oscar-winner... but is it gaining another?

Though not officially confirmed, word is that Daniel Day-Lewis will ditch the 'stache and flat-brimmed hat and two-step in as a replacement for the departed Javier Bardem (who left because he was "exhausted from work and awards season", whatever that translates to in Hollywood speak). DDL would play (somewhat) fictional film director Guido Contini, who struggles with his career and a bunch of ladies.

Those ladies are Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench, so the movie could very well be a magnet for more Oscars -- Marshall's last A-list stage-to-movie musical CHICAGO won quite a few. The movie is based on the Broadway musical, itself an update of Fellini's 8 1/2, except point-five more awesome.
Extra Tidbit: Anthony Minghella handed in a rewrite of NINE shortly before he died in March.

This is great. Really great.
And this isn't some remake of 8 1/2. "Nine" won Best Musical in the 1982 Tony's. It's good music. Good handling of Fellini's themes. This is amazing. Look at the cast!

A Musical version of 8 1/2

...regardless of whether or not it includes DDL, is like taking a giant shit on one of the greatest films ever made. Who came up with this bull?

i love daniel day-lewis but isn't nine based on fellini? when i look at day-lewis i don't really see the resemblance. i thought bardem was perfect for the role, too bad he dropped out. i guess we'll see.
