The film version is based on the Tony Award winning musical, “Nine,” directed by Academy Award nominated director Rob Marshall (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Chicago”).

Heading the stellar cast are Academy Award winners Daniel Day-Lewis (“There Will Be Blood,” “My Left Foot”), Nicole Kidman (“The Hours”), Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), Judi Dench (“Shakespeare in Love”), and Sophia Loren (“Two Women”); Academy Award nominee Penelope Cruz (“Volver”) and Kate Hudson (“Almost Famous”); and Grammy Award winner Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson. The international cast also includes Ricky Tognazzi, Giuseppe Cederna, Valerio Mastandrea, and Martina Stella.
“Nine” tells the story of world famous film director Guido Contini, who faces a personal and professional crisis as he struggles to prepare his latest picture, while balancing the numerous women in his life — his wife, his mistress, his movie star muse, his costume designer, a fashion journalist, a whore from his childhood, and his mother.
The film is being shot in England at Shepperton Studios, and in Italy on location and at Cinecitta Studios in Rome.

The Weinstein Company released the first official photograph of the film 'NINE' starring Penelope Cruz and many other notable of the stage and screen.

Set in Italy, but currently being shot in the UK, the star-studded film tells the story of a middle-aged film director distracted by the many women in his life.

The director Guido Contini, played by Lewis, is experiencing something of a mid-life crisis as he struggles to finish his latest film in 1960s Venice.

Cruz plays his mistress Carla, who is vying for Contini’s attention with his wife Louisa, played by La Vie En Rose star, Marion Cotillard, and his muse Claudia, played by Nicole Kidman.

Nine was originally a hit on Broadway in 1982 and ran for 729 performances, making a star out of the Puerto Rican actor Raul Julia.

The film version is being directed Rob Marshall, who directed the acclaimed screen version of the musical Chicago.

Nine’s impressive cast also includes Judi Dench, Kate Hudson and the Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, who is said to be putting on weight for her role as prostitute Saraghina.

Cruz and Lewis were photographed on set in the Nene Valley Railway in Peterborough, but the Spanish actress appeared to suffer from the cold, shivering as Lewis wrapped his overcoat around her.

Filming is expected to finish in January.
