'Nine' pushed to December
The Weinstein Co. has bumped its star-studded musical Nine to December, according to Brad Brevet at Rope Of Silicon. Instead of its previously announced release date of Nov. 29, Rob Marshall’s film starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Penélope Cruz will now come out on Dec. 18 in New York and Los Angeles followed by a wider release on Christmas Day. This isn’t the biggest shock in the world; as it was, the Weinstein Co. was scheduled to open Nine and The Road on the same day. Now they’ll have two weeks between The Road and Tom Ford’s A Single Man (now set for Dec. 11). A representative for the Weinstein Co. tells me that Nine is now locked and that the move is not a result of Marshall’s needing more time to tinker with it.
