BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Composer Junkie XL Joins SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, is tackling the film adaptation of Sega's best-selling Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, the renowned composer revealed in a recent interview with Film Music Magazine.

The Dutch artist is best known for scoring some of the biggest Hollywood productions, including Mad Max: Fury Road and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Given that his Deadpool soundtrack was widely praised by fans, there's a chance that Tim Miller, the director of Merc with a Mouth's cinematic debut and executive producer of Sonic, has personally handpicked Junkie XL to score the movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog is helmed by Jeff Fowler (Gopher Broke, Where the Wild Things Are), starring Ben Schwartz (Modern Family, DuckTales), James Marsden (Enchanted, X-Men: The Last Stand), Tika Sumpter (Ride Along, Think Like a Man), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Adam Pally (Californication, Taking Woodstock), and Jim Carrey (Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty).

Junkie XL’s latest work can be heard in the James Cameron-produced fantasy film Alita: Battle Angel, an adaptation of the Japanese cyberpunk manga series created by Yukito Kishiro in 1990, telling the story of a young woman with amnesia struggling to uncover her forgotten past in the post-apocalyptic world.

The live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie will be released in US cinemas on November 8, 2019.
