In a move that has seemed logical for some time now, deadmau5 will score his first film. He teased the move a little while ago, but now it has been officially announced. He will score the new film directed by Swedish director and drummer Jonas Åkerlund titled Polar. The film is based on the noir action graphic novel Polar: Came From the Cold, authored by Victor Santos. It will arrive via Netflix and Constantin Film sometime in early 2019.
The film is about the world’s top assassin Duncan Vizla assassin who is attempting to retire and live out a peaceful life, but his former employer has other ideas and marks him a liability. He is forced to get back in the game and fight for his life.
According to a press release, “The action, mystery and intrigue will be set entirely to a custom body of menacing productions” from deadmau5.
Deadmau5 is not touring as extensively as he once was, so he has time to work on these types of projects, which are time consuming and require to adhere to a film schedule. You can’t necessarily jet off to a three-month tour and ignore the project, causing delays in production.
We look forward to seeing what kind of production he does for this film.
