Deadpool 2 recently graced the headlines for losing its director, Tim Miller, over “creative differences” with Ryan Reynolds. Now, it has lost its composer, JunkieXL, who also composed the first film.
JunkieXL let everyone know via Facebook that he would not be involved with the second film purely because of Miller’s departure from the project, saying:
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.
JunkieXL definitely did Deadpool well, from a musician’s standpoint, so it will be sad to see him go, but I have no doubt that, with the scope of Deadpool’s new franchise, they will be able to find someone who will do it well.
Deadpool 2 is set to release January 12, 2018.
