An ambiguous state of affairs has resulted in a significant change to Blade Runner 2049‘s credits. Earlier in the year, it was announced that Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch would accompany Jóhann Jóhannsson on the film score, but now it has come to light that his name will not appear on the liner whatsoever.

The newspaper Icelandic Review broke the news that the composer would no longer be involved in the production, although the exact circumstances leading up to the decision remain unknown to the general public. Spokespeople on behalf of Jóhannsson told Pitchfork that nondisclosure agreements prevented them from commenting on the change.

Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to a 1982 sci-fi film titled Blade Runner which starred Harrison Ford. In new film, the prolific Hollywood actor plays a supporting role with Ryan Gosling taking the lead.

Blade Runner 2049 debuts in movie theaters around the world on October 6th, 2017.
