'20,000 Days On Earth' to follow the singer on a fictional day in the life

New film tracing Nick Cave's 20,000th day alive in the works
A fictional film is set to be released following Nick Cave on the 20,000th day of his life, reports The Guardian.

Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, who first worked with Cave on the music video for his 2008 single 'Dig, Lazarus Dig!', the film features abstract, unrehearsed scenes and was completely unscripted. Narrated by Cave, it also features cameos from actor Ray Winstone and pop star Kylie Minogue.

Work began secretly on the film - called '20,000 Days On Earth' - when Cave and his band The Bad Seeds started writing sessions for their latest album 'Push The Sky Away'. The title for the movie was inspired by the Australian frontman having worked out he had been alive for exactly 20,000 days at the start of the sessions.

Speaking about the project, Cave revealed: "They filmed everything. They had a camera set up in my office when I'm just writing the first lines of things, picking out the first melodies on the piano."

He continued: "That's kind of why I let this go in the first place because you just don't have cameras on bands doing the actual thing. In the past, I've let cameras into the studio, but we've basically already finished the record. So you get shots of people sitting around in the control booth, listening to music."

No release date for the film has been announced as yet. Meanwhile, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds performed on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this weekend (June 30) but nearly missed their appearance after the singer fell offstage during ATP Iceland the day before.
