As everyone knows good and well, Deadmau5 is one of the worlds most renowned DJ’s as he was one of the first artists to release EDM music and since then has made a huge impact unlike any other. It was just a matter of time until he expanded his career, and he’s doing just that. Just yesterday, Netflix and Constantin Film announced that Deadmau5 will create his first ever film soundtrack for Polar which is set to release next year.
According to the main press announcement, “Polar is based upon the Dark Horse action noir graphic novel Polar: Came From the Cold by Victor Santos. The world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, aka the Black Kaiser, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he fins himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.” The entire film soundtrack will be produced by Deadmau5 himself.
“The Constantin Film/Bolt Pictures co-production, in association with Dark Horse Entertainment stars Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One), Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers, Beastly), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings)and Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland, Doctor Who, Little Britain). It is produced by Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer (Resident Evil franchise), Jeremy Bolt (Resident Evil franchise, Death Race), Hartley Gorenstein (Room) and is Executive Produced by Constantin Film’s Martin Moszkowicz, Mads Mikkelsen, and Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.”
Netflix is set to release the film in 2019 but wont be seen in Canada, Germany, and China.
