Deadmau5 is having a great year! Back in March, the DJ and producer released his highly anticipated Where’s the drop? album to rave reviews. Even more recently, Deadmau5 shared that he was working on his film scoring debut, and at the time, no one knew which film was being scored; now, “the mouse is outta the bag” and the title has been unveiled. Have a look at the official reveal in the tweet below.

The film Polar is based off the graphic novel Polar: Came From the Cold by Victor Santos. It follows the plight of an assassin who is forced out of his retirement because his former bosses sent hit men after him. Known as the ‘Black Kaiser’, the assassin is portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen. Furthermore, Vanessa Hudgens and Kathryn Winnick are cast, though their roles have not been revealed at this time.
In addition, the film is directed by Grammy Award winning director, Jonas Åkerlund, known for his work in ‘music film’. Most notably, he directed the music video for Madonna’s Ray of Light track from the album of the same name. Åkerlund won two awards: a Grammy for ‘Best Short Form Music Video’ and a VMA for ‘Best Direction in a Music Video’.
Polar will debut worldwide at some point in 2019 through Netflix, excluding Canada, Germany, and China; in those specific countries, Constantin Film will handle the film’s circulation.
