Creating formatted output using picture strings

Does Python provide a way to format a string according to a
'picture' format?

For example, if I have a string '123456789' and want it formatted
like '(123)-45-(678)[9]', is there a module or function that will
allow me to do this or do I need to code this type of
transformation myself?

Thank you,
