Deadmau5 announced today that he has made his first-ever film score for the movie Polar, set to release in 2019.
Directed by acclaimed Swedish director and drummer, Jonas Akerlund, the film is based off of the action noir comic of the same name. It is about a former top international assassin, The Black Kaiser, settling into retirement only to learn that his former organization is trying to kill him. Forced out of retirement, he goes head to head against a squad of younger, stronger assassins who are hell-bent for his destruction.
Jayson Rothwell (Silent Night) wrote the screenplay, and the talent includes Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange), Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), and Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland).
The music for this action-packed film brimming with mystery and intrigue will be entirely custom produced by deadmau5. Clearly, the steely and gritty feel of this film noir movie that’s set in an icy landscape should complement perfectly to some of deadmau5’s darker and deeper musical tastes, such as his 2017’s “Bad at Titles.”
Polar is set to be released globally in 2019 by Netflix, with the exception of Canada, Germany, and China, which will be released by Constantin Film.
