Kate Hudson joins Marshall’s ‘Nine’ cast

Kate Hudson has landed a leading role in Rob Marshall’s big screen version of the Broadway musical ‘Nine’.

Hudson is thought to have beaten off competition from Sienna Miller and Anne Hathaway to take the part of fashion journalist Stephanie.

Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench are already among the cast.

Shooting on Nine, which marks Chicago director Marshall’s return to the musical genre, is scheduled to commence in September.
