has reportedly pulled out of director Rob Marshall's
film adaptation of the musical Nine
after falling out with the filmmaker.
The Welsh actress was slated to appear as Claudia, the luscious star and muse to on-screen director, Guido Contini, in the film, but sources claim she was unhappy with her small role.
The New York Daily News
reports, "The strong-willed actress won't be in the movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical - allegedly because director Rob Marshall wouldn't give in to her demand to beef up her role. Marshall is said to have politely told her the script couldn't be changed so dramatically."
Real-life lovers Javier Bardem
and Penelope Cruz
will star in the film, while French actress Marion Cotillard
and Sophia Loren
also appear in the cast.
