For a career that has creatively evolved over a decade with numerous record-breaking sold-out shows, platinum-selling original releases, multiple major music award-wins and event firsts, deadmau5–one of the world’s most renowned electronic music producers and live performers–will add another prestigious accolade to his extensive list of accomplishments. Today (September 18), Netflix and Constantin Film announce that deadmau5 is creating his first-ever film score for Polar, set for release next year.
Directed by renowned Swedish director and drummer Jonas Åkerlund with the screenplay written by Jayson Rothwell (Silent Night), 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 finds 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 action, mystery and intrigue will be set entirely to a custom body of menacing productions by deadmau5.
Netflix will release the film globally in 2019, excluding Canada, Germany, and China where Constantin Film will be handling distribution.
