In an amazing coup for the Canadian produer, deamau5 has scored the upcoming Netflix film, ‘Polar’. The action thriller, which will be avaiable to view on Netflix from January 25, was directed by renowned Swedish director and drummer, Jonas Åkerlund, while the screenplay was written by Jayson Rothwell, best known for the 2012 horror film, ‘Silent Night’.
‘Polar’ is based on the Dark Horse action noir graphic novel, ‘Polar: Came From The Cold‘, by Victor Santos. It tells the story of Duncan Vizla, also known as The Black Kaiser, the world’s top assassin who is settling into his retirement, when his former employer decides this makes him a liability to the firm. Vizla finds himself forced back into the game, and goes head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers, who will stop at nothing to see him silenced.
deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, was chosen for the project in September last year. ‘Polar’ marks his film score debut.
