TO MAKE FILM SCORE DEBUT FOR
JONAS AKERLUND--DIRECTED
'POLAR'

FILM SET FOR RELEASE EARLY 2019
VIA NETFLIX AND CONSTANTIN FILM

For a career that has creatively evolved over a decade with numerous record-breaking sold-out shows, platinum-selling original releases, multiple major music award-wins and event firsts, deadmau5--one of the world's most renowned electronic music producers and live performers--will add another prestigious accolade to his extensive list of accomplishments.  Today (September 18), Netflix and Constantin Film announce that deadmau5 is creating his first-ever film score for Polar, set for release next year.
Directed by renowned Swedish director and drummer Jonas Ã…kerlund with the screenplay written by Jayson Rothwell (Silent Night), Polar is based upon the Dark Horse action noir graphic novel Polar: Came From the Cold by Victor Santos.  The world's top assassin, Duncan Vizla, aka The Black Kaiser, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.  The action, mystery and intrigue will be set entirely to a custom body of menacing productions by deadmau5.
The Constantin Film/Bolt Pictures co-production, in association with Dark Horse Entertainment stars Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One), Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers, Beastly), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings) and Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland, Doctor Who, Little Britain).  It is produced by Constantin Film's Robert Kulzer (Resident Evil franchise), Jeremy Bolt (Resident Evil franchise, Death Race), Hartley Gorenstein (Room) and is Executive Produced by Constantin Film's Martin Moszkowicz, Mads Mikkelsen, and Dark Horse Entertainment's Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.

Netflix will release the film globally in 2019, excluding Canada, Germany, and China where Constantin Film will be handling distribution.
