Nick Cave Novel ‘The Death of Bunny Munro’ To Be Made Into TV Series

Nick Cave’s 2009 novel ‘The Death of Bunny Munro’ will be made into a limited television series.

The novel is set in Brighton, UK, where Cave resides. It is about a womaniser and alcohol abusing Bunny Munro, who’s life goes more and more frenzied.

Sky Studios will produce the six-part series with Matt Smith starring as Munro. Smith was the 11th Dr Who and played Mr Sir Prince Phillip in the 2016-2017 series of The Crown.

Nick Cave told The Hollywood Reporter “Finally, someone with the courage to take on this unholy tale. I am thrilled that Sky and Clerkenwell Films are bringing Bunny to life, in all his flawed glory, and I can think of nobody better than Matt Smith to play him.”

Cave has also been working on the next Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album. He was mixing the new record in Buffalo in early November so expect at first half of 2024 release.

The most recent Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album was ‘Ghosteen’ in October 2019. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis also released the album ‘Carnage’ in 2021.
