Deadpool 2 has encountered another setback.
Not only has the highly anticipated X-Men spinoff lost director Tim Miller over creative differences, but now composer Junkie XL has departed the project as well. Taking to Facebook to make the announcement, the composer felt that Miller was the driving force behind the first Deadpool movie and getting him involved with the first film.
Junkie XL posted the following to his Facebook page earlier today...
It is with a heavy heart that I have decided not to score the upcoming Deadpool Movie. I love this character and creating his and the movie's original score was a monumental chapter in my life, personally and professionally.
Since it was revealed that Deadpool's brilliant creative director Tim Miller will not be involved in the project anymore, I have undertaken some soul searching. Tim was the driving force behind Deadpool and me getting involved in this amazing project. Deadpool without Tim at the helm just does not sit right with me and that is why I have decided not to be involved in the second chapter.
It was a difficult decision, as I love the project so much and I know how eagerly the next installment will be anticipated, it's hard to walk away from something so unique, but it also has to feel right.
Hope everyone understands. Onward and upward.
This is indeed sad to hear, but we can totally understand where he is coming from.
Now, the question is, who will Fox get to replace the composer on Deadpool 2?
