Epic Records/Sony Music Soundtrax announced the January 14, 2003 release of the soundtrack for Miramax Films' big screen version of Bob Fosse's Broadway hit "Chicago." Directed by Rob Marshall ("Annie") and adapted for the screen by Bill Condon ("Gods And Monsters"), "Chicago" is the tale of two female stars, one fading, the other about to be born, jostling for the limelight via the city's famed Murderers Row.

Catherine Zeta-Jones plays Velma Kelly, Chicago's biggest nightclub sensation who also happens to be standing trial for shooting her two-timing husband. In walks Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), the slickest lawyer in town. He eagerly takes on Velma's case, the most notorious of its kind in a town known for the juiciest of scandals. Despite her incarceration, Velma's star rises even higher - that is until budding starlet Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger) kills her abusive boyfriend and lands in jail right next to her. Sensing an even bigger story, Flynn puts Velma on hold and takes on Roxie's case. In short order Roxie's crime of passion turns to gaudy headlines and Roxie becomes a bona fide star - leaving Velma standing in the shadows. But Velma is not to be undone so quickly...
