First Look: Kylie Minogue's Cameo In Nick Cave's '20,000 Days on Earth' [Picture]

Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave formed an unlikely partnership in the 1980s – he was the badass rebel while she was struggling to rid herself of the pop princess title. The expertly crafted track, Where The Wild Roses Grow, combined Cave’s gruff deliverance with Minogue’s perfect pitch, and represented a shocking but most-welcome pop bite.

Now, in 20,000 Days on Earth, which will be directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the Australian compatriots will combine once more.

The drama-documentary, which follows Cave on the 20,000th day of his life, and on that momentous day, he decides to watch Scarface with his 12-year-old sons and take a little drive with Ray Winstone down at the seafront. '20,000 Days on Earth' would make you 54 years old, just in case you couldn’t be bothered to do the maths. Supported by Pulse Films, Film4, Corniche Pictures and BFI, the film is due out next year.

In other Cave news, and the ever-surprising goth-dad revealed recently that he’d written a sequel to Ridley Scott’s Academy Award-winning Gladiator, starring Russell Crowe. He said, while speaking to Marc Maron’s WTF podcast back on July 4, “[he] goes to purgatory and is sent down by the gods, who are dying in heaven because there’s this one god, there’s this Christ character, down on Earth who is gaining popularity. And so the many gods are dying, and they send Gladiator back to kill Christ and all his followers.” Oh please someone make this film. Please.
