A new featurette, which is really more of a behind-the-scenes montage, has been released for Rob Marshall’s movie musical “Nine,” based on Frederico Fellini’s “8 1/2.” The musical follows famed fictional director Guido Contini (played by Daniel Day-Lewis) and the various people–wife, mistress, agent, etc–in his life. Between this featurette and the film’s trailer, I’d say “Nine” is looking sharp. My favorite movie musical of all time is Marshall’s “Chicago,” which really got it right, so I’m jazzed, if you will, to see him returning to the genre…and we can just overlook “Memoirs of a Geisha.” In addition to Day-Lewis, the cast includes Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and the incomparable Judi Dench, so there’s something in there for everyone. Watch the featurette after the jump.
