Nick Cave novel to be made into TV mini-series
Written by Administrator   
Friday, 09 July 2010
ImageNick Cave's novel The Death Of Bunny Munro is to be made into a TV mini-series. The musician and screenwriter told Empire about the adaptation at June's Dundee Literature Festival, stating he originally wrote the story as a screenplay, but had it published as a novel after it failed to move forward.

A dark and humorous book, the plot is centred around the life of a sex-addicted cosmetics salesman after his wife commits suicide.

According to the Bad Seeds singer, Ray Winstone is "dying" to play the part of Bunny and John Hillcoat – who has worked with Cave before on The Proposition – is lined up to direct.

"[Winstone] really loved the script when we first handed it to him," explained Cave. "He was really excited about it, and really distressed it kinda tanked and never got made."

After playing the role of Captain Stanley in Cave's 2005 film The Proposition, the screenwriter is confident Winstone is perfect for the role.

"Ray let himself go for that particular part. When he speaks everyone cranes toward him: he has this kind of pull which is really extraordinary. It's something to do with his ability to be really funny, and the kind of vulnerability he has going on."

John Hillcoat said of the pair's ambitions for the project: "We're going to try and wake up the BBC or Channel4, and say to British television, 'Look at HBO. I mean what the hell are you doing?'"

Cave also hinted he is presently trying to get another full-length feature film under way.

New Grinderman Single : Heathen Child
Written by Andrea   
Friday, 02 July 2010

ImageHeathen Child, the new single from the band Grinderman, will be released on 30th August. The premiere offering from their new studio album Grinderman 2, Heathen Child will be released through Mute with the complete album following on 13th September.

The song Heathen Child cuts a deep seductively heavy groove interjected with dazzling squalls of saw-tooth distortion. It abounds in lyrical imagery at turns lascivious, paranoid, philosophic, absurd and flat out abusive. The video, vividly directed by long-time collaborator John Hillcoat, brings the ominous sensuality and surreal malevolence of the lyrics to life; but it also demonstrates clear evidence of the fun and imagination Grinderman have working together.  (http://www.grinderman.com)
