Following the departure of director Tim Miller, now Deadpool 2 has lost its composer with Junkie XL.

Junkie XL, aka Tom Holkenborg, scored the first Deadpool movie and took to Twitter to announce the news.

"It is with a heavy heart that I have decided not to score the upcoming Deadpool movie," Junkie XL posted. "I love this character and creating his and the movie's original score was a monumental chapter in my life, personally and professionally."

Junkie XL goes on to state he decided to leave Deadpool 2 as a result of Tim Miller's own departure.

"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.

"It was a difficult decision, as I love the project so much and I know how eagerly the next installment will be anticipated," Junkie XL continued. "It's hard to walk away from something so unique, but it also has to feel right."

It was previously said director Tim Miller left Deadpool 2 over creative differences, specifically with Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool 2 has not director as of yet.
