Deadmau5 will score the soundtrack to Jonas Akerlund’s (Lords of Chaos) Netflix feature Polar, adapted from the Dark Horse action noir graphic novel by Victor Santos.
In Polar, the world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla (Mads Mikkelsen), aka The Black Kaiser, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm puts a price on his head that sets him on a collision course with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.
The Black Kaiser is forced to return to the shadowy life he thought he’d left behind, and must use his arsenal of deadly skills to outsmart his enemies. His mission only ends if he dies or kills everyone out to get him, and he’s not in the habit of dying.
Deadmau5 posted on Twitter: “Well, the mouse is outta the bag… working on my first film score for @constantinfilm @Netflix’s #Polar. So in honor of @theofficialmads character, I’ll be wearing an eyepatch the entire time #blackkaiser”
Victor Santos replied: “Very happy because the DJ and composer @deadmau5 is scoring #polarthemovie… Can´t wait to watch my hitman with his music.”
Starring Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), and Matt Lucas (Doctor Who), Polar is slated for release on Netflix in 2019, excluding Canada, Germany, and China where Constantin Film will handle distribution.
