Famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) struggles to find harmony in his professional and personal lives, as he engages in dramatic relationships with his wife, his mistress, his muse, his agent, and his mother.

This film looks very promising! I guess we don't have to wait another five years before we see the great Daniel Day-Lewis in a film. The supporting cast is great as well, PenÚlope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Judi Dench, Marion Cotillard, Stacey Furgeson (seems out of place here), and the great Sophia Loren. Wow!! I'm drueling just thinking about it.

Note: This is a musical and it has been reported that director Rob Marshall has been having singing and dance auditions all over and has said that Daniel Day-Lewis' singing voice blew him away. Do I smell another Oscar here?

Take a closer look here at IMDB...

I thought this guy only makes a movie every 6 years or something like that?

Yeah, he usually takes a lot of time off between roles. He must've really loved the material after he read it to be taking part in this project. That's a good sign that the script is good. I look forward to seeing this.

Wait, wasn't Javier Bardem supposed to play Guido? I heard Maury Yeston (music and lyrics) confirm it himself (along with penelope cruz) in an interview quite a while back. The interview was a while back but it may not apply anymore.

Further research on Wikipedia tells me Bardem was just a rumor. Well anyway this is really exciting, i've heard a couple of songs from the show that were fantastic (i hope they arrange them well). A musical based on Felini's 8 1/2 (with good songs to boot) AND DDL? i can't see how this could go wrong.

no, its just a musical adaptation. Of course if you have a distaste for musicals then maybe everything can go wrong and already has

I've talked to numerous people who have seen the Broadway show of "Nine" and they say it's amazing. If Daniel Day-Lewis has signed to star, I'm guessing the script is pretty great. I'm looking forward to see how this turns out.

Great performance there by Antonio Banderas. I can't wait to see how Daniel Day-Lewis sounds singing.

I'll have my Cloverfield paper bags ready.  I wonder who currently owns the rights to 8 1\2 and sold them for some fast buck to these clowns.

Maury Yeston worked on the show from '73 all the way until the show premiered on 1982. I assure you, that at least through Yeston's POV, the project was anything but a cheap cash in

The Banderas scene you posted left no doubt about the level of the entire project.

I'll admit that that song in particular isn't very strong and also that i haven't actually seen the show itself but there are some very good songs that I've heard. There are some great highlights, one being the all vocal Overture at the start of the show (shown very briefly in the video), as well as "Be on Your Own" which with the right arrangements (piano) is also a great song.

Of course the thing about musicals is that if you don't like the songs, then you're kind of screwed. So it all really comes down to the ear of the beholder, as well as the whole execution of the film itself.
