It seems like the hits keep coming for the sequel to Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool movie. After losing their director Tim Miller who is now going to be directing a live-action/CGI hybrid Sonic the Hedgehog Movie for Sony Pictures, the film has now lost it’s composer Junkie XL.
It’s hard to believe anyone would or could leave the production to a Deadpool sequel, but it goes to show that there is no loyalty in marriages, sports teams, and film productions. Just kidding, this is actually quite the contrary in regards to one’s loyalty. Junkie went to his Facebook to give a statement on why he left the composing job for the film:
“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 appears Miller’s vision didn’t just resonate with himself, but their composer too which begs the question of what the heck was Miller’s vision that it inspired the composer to step down because it meant so much to him? Regardless, Junkie’s music wasn’t exactly the highlight of the film as was the soundtrack of classic tunes throughout, otherwise, the score is actually pretty average in terms of the sonic aspects of it all.
We can only wait to see what other cast and crew members leave or join due to the vision that will be laid out by the star and main producer of the film (Reynolds) and what directions he wants to take his movie that he holds so closely with him.
