Rob Marshall's 'Nine' Delayed by Strike

Cb_l The film adaptation of Nine, the Broadway musical based on Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2, has become another casualty of the writers’ strike. Production on the film, directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago), was set to begin in March, but will now be delayed until the second half of next year.

Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) signed on two days before the strike began to polish the original Michael Tolkin (The Player) script. Now, of course he won’t be able to.

The film’s cast includes Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Sophia Loren, and Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose). It’s unknown if this schedule shift will require any of the roles to be recast. Catherine Zeta-Jones had been in talks to star in the film at one point, but contrary to other reports, never committed. —Nicole Sperling

    Great, so now it won’t be eligible for the 2008 Oscar season. This makes me frustrated. I’m really looking forward to this movie, I hate that it has to be delayed.

    Pity. I was really looking forward to that one. I guess we’ll just have to wait a bit longer.
