Looks like the legendary Penny Lane has decided to abandon her musician-worshipping past and give us a little song and dance of her own. Of course, we speak of one Kate Hudson, who recently signed on for a lead role in Nine, the Rob Marshall (Chicago) adaptation of the 1982 Broadway musical of the same name.

Hudson will be joining a cast already stocked with Hollywood heavyweights. Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) will play the male lead, Guido Contini, a renowned director who strains to juggle the many ladies of his life amid filming his latest project. Academy Award winners Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren and Penélope Cruz have already signed on to play said ladies.
