Academy Award Nominee and Golden Globe winner Jóhann Jóhannsson is no longer attached to the film Blade Runner 2049. He was announced as the film’s sole composer in August 2016, and in July this year, it was reported that Hans Zimmer would join him due to Jóhann’s busy schedule.
The film’s latest poster now only shows Zimmer’s name. Jóhann’s agent has confirmed to Fréttablaðið that the Icelandic composer is no longer involved with the film in any capacity, though he is prohibited from saying anything at this point due to his contract.
Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to the 1982 film Blade Runner. It is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who has collaborated with Jóhann on a number of his films, such as Sicario, Prisoners, and Arrival. The film is scheduled to be released globally October 6th.
