Daniel Day Lewis Takes Over For Javier Bardem

Javier Bardem pulled out of Rob Marshall film Nine last month due to exhaustion. And it looks like they've found his replacement.  Daniel Day Lewis is in talks to take over the role of Guido Contini.

This should be quite a tough role to take on for Lewis, because it's a musical.  But he is known as an actor who takes great pride in the roles he selects, so he must feel that he can pull off the part of the famous film director who experiences personal crisis while trying to balance all the women in his life.
