Although not technically a spaghetti, Nick Cave has written a script in spaghetti western style, which will directed by long time friend and collaborator John Hillcoat, and it will be starring Guy Pearce. The film will start shooting in the beginning of 2005, and it should be fantastic (I am after all a Nick Cave-fanatic as well as a spaghetti western fanatic).

Yep, I've read it. Several times, actually. It has an incredible ambiance, and if the new western can capture just a little bit of that, I would be in heaven.

Nick Cave writing a spaghetti-western!!! Like you Nobody, I'm a big fan of both Nick Cave and Leone-westerns. This would seem promising, given the touch on many of his records - remember Red Right Hand and Stagger Lee for instance? Now we only need Tom Waits for a part in the movie and a soundtrack collaborator. He's got that touch as well...

Tom Waits...that would be great. In addition to his amazing discography (I can't think of an album I don't like), he is a terrific actor. Have you seen him as Renfield in Coppola's "Dracula". He IS Renfield.

By the way, you should check out the last film John Hillcoat directed from a Nick Cave script, "Ghosts...Of The Civil Dead". A really powerful allegorical prison film. A great performance by Nick Cave to.

I love "Red Right Hand"!  That song's too cool for words.  Grin

I shall keep myself ready to hear any updates.

My favourite Nick Cave album is without a doubt "The Boatman's Call". It's quiet, melancholic, and it is his most personal album, and should tell you as much about Nick Cave himself as anybody on this board can. If you like it, you might want to check ou some of these albums as well: "Your Funeral, My Trial" (early Nick Cave, very different from his later works), "Let Love In", "Murder Ballads" (all songs on this album are stories about a murder, including Nick Cave's biggest hit, "Where The Wild Roses Grow", feat. Kylie Minouge), or you could simply by his best of-compilation: "The Best Of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds".

His novel, "And The Ass Saw The Angel", has already been mentioned on this board. It is also worth to check out, but if you are going to buy one of his books, I'd rather recommend "The Complete Lyrics", which proves that Nick Cave is indeed one of the greatest songwriters ever.

Nick Cave have also appeared in some films you might have seen. He played himself in the german classic "Wings Of Desire" (Wim Wenders), and his music appears on the soundtrack for most of Wenders' films. His biggest acting part was in "Johnny Suede" (Tom DiCillio), against Brad Pitt. One of his most famous songs, Red Right Hand, sounds like it was made for a spaghetti western, and has been used in many films (most of them crap), including Dumb And Dumber, Scream 1,2, and 3, plus X-files (the TV-series, not the movie). You've probably heard it.

It does look outstanding... this is a must see for me... Nick cave is one of my favorite writers, Which is actually due to a reccomendation made by someone on these boards a while ago, in a thread about the rumor that he'd be writing this script if I'm not mistaken.

Another western I've been hearing good things about is Tommy lee jones(acting/directing) new film "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" apparently it's very spaghetti/peckinpah-like.

Some of the first reviews..

The film has received a bit of extra publicity here in Denmark where normally nobody would give a rat's ass about an Aussie-western (except me and around 34 others)
- because Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds performed in the newly constructed Copenhagen Opera House at an Award show - in the presence of the Crown Prince. And my! - he opened with an extremely punky version of West Country Girl - I think the suburban bourgeoise house wifes who love to dig royal events in the telly were really blown away. The unfortunately the channel had to leave the show for the news.

Cave performing at the show was a direct request from "his highness" - who's got an OK taste in music - Led Zep, BRMC, and now Nick Cave. But I don't think they counted on him opening the "opera" show making that much noise... hahaha, that'll teach them. Trying to make Cave fit in a mainstream event.

Here's the reviews:

It seems it'll open in Denmark in the spring...

Yup, I posted some early info on this a long time ago. Cave claimed it would be done in SW style. Early reviews are great, can't wait for this one. Soundtrack by Cave and Warren Ellis is out soon.

Director John Hillcoat and Nick Cave are already working on a new film together, and Cave was actually hired by Dreamworks recently to write Gladiator 2 (no kidding). They rejected his script, by it looks like he might be working more with films in the future.
