Following the departure of director Tim Miller last month, composer Junkie XL – a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg – has revealed on Facebook that he has decided against returning for Deadpool 2, as he doesn’t feel right working on the sequel without the “driving force” of Miller. Here’s his post:
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.
