Deadpool Movie to be Scored by Mad Max: Fury Road Composer Junkie XL
Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL is the most sought-after film composer at the moment. He has delivered great scores for many movies including 2015 Mad Max: Fury Road
Fans have recently heard Holkenborg’s music during Mad Max: Fury Road, as well as co-compositions with Hans Zimmer on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Man of Steel and The Dark Knight Rises. He will also provide the Batman-specific pieces of music for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character alongside T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character. Reynolds has also expressed a desire that Hugh Jackman might cameo as Wolverine, though it remains unconfirmed as to whether or not he will actually appear.
Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Confirmed to be rated R, Deadpool is scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
