Rob Marshall’s musical Nine is about to get Fergalicious (or maybe Glamorous?) Black Eyed Peas alum Fergie is in negotiations to sing in the Weinstein-produced movie-musical. If she accepts, the first-time actress will get hot and heavy with Hollywood heavyweight Daniel Day-Lewis as Saraghina, a woman who seduces Mr. Day-Lewis’ character (Guido) into the world of sex, according to Variety.
The musical’s plot is based on a play by Italian writer Mario Fratti and was inspired by Federico Fellini’s 1963, Oscar-winning film 8½. Mr. Day-Lewis’s character, a film director, will review the women he has loved and lost after his most successful film leaves him drained for new ideas and his 40th birthday approaches. Marion Cottilard, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren and Judi Dench are set to play the ladies in Guido’s life.
The movie will begin filming in October in the U.K.
