Deadpool Sequel Has Second Exit by Junkie XL
Another One Bites the Dust for Deadpool Sequel
What many are trying to paint as a mass exodus from the Deadpool franchise, another cog to the machine has announced their departure. Junkie XL, composer for Deadpool, has announced his decision to leave the sequel. Following the previous post of director Tim Miller’s departure, the composer released a statement regarding his exit.
“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.”
Although the movie’s music is mostly remembered for it’s pop hits like “Shoop” or “Angel in the Morning”, I’m sure some will be upset by the loss. Loyalty should count for something. But in this day and age, it’s all about ‘what have you done for me lately’ type of mentality. This is a much less significant loss than Miller’s exit. The movie will find a replacement composer and none will be the wiser.
