The unexpected follow-up to last year’s crime thriller ‘Sicario’ will make Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro its main characters, while it’s also been announced that it will be followed by a third instalment, too.

Director Stefano Sollima, who will replace Denis Villeneuve in the hot seat for the sequel, entitled ‘Soldado’, told the Independent, “[It’s a] completely different story with just two of the characters that you met in ‘Sicario’. The antagonists are now absolutely the main characters.”

But they’re not just stopping there, because the Italian director also confirmed to the publication, “The idea is to make three anthology movies with some of the core actors and [set] in the same world.”

This means that Josh Brolin’s CIA agent Matt Graver and Benicio Del Toro’s hitman Alejandro Gillick will lead the way. However we’re still not too sure if the follow-up will be set before or after their antics with Emily Blunt’s innocent FBI agent Kate Macer.

It’s already been confirmed that Blunt will be unable to return as she’s busy taking the titular role of ‘Mary Poppins’ in the upcoming remake, while Villeneuve is also off overseeing the ‘Blade Runner’ sequel.

This makes the inclusion of Brolin and Del Toro all the more important, because without them ‘Soldado’ and ‘Sicario 3 could have easily deflated. A connection between ‘Sicario’ and ‘Soldado’ has also been solidified by the return of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, too.




A sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s incredible cartel thriller Sicario is in “full development,” according to film’s producers. Not only that, but Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin are all “on board” to return.

S has once again been tagged to write the film. However, with Denis Villeneuve attached to helm Story Of Your Life and Blade Runner 2, it’s unlikely to return as director.

Said Black Label Media co-founder Trent Luckinbill in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “You have such a great character with Benicio, who was as dark as he was and still so loved. That character resonates so well with audiences. People want to know what happened to him, so it’s a perfect foray for us to explore. Obviously we would love it if Denis could [direct]. He’s a busy man, but he’s certainly part of the process with us right now.”

Screen captures from Sicario has been added to the gallery:




Josh Brolin’s inscrutable character from Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed crime drama was a mystery even to him.

Sicario turned out to be one of the most interesting and unexpected dramas of 2015. The film, directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners), tells the story of an FBI agent (Emily Blunt) who gets roped into the a plot to destabilize a violent drug ring, which may or may not be an illegal operation by the American government. The film’s complex moral quandaries are represented in large part by Oscar-nominated actor Josh Brolin (Milk), who plays a government agent whose plans and scruples are a mystery that must be solved.

It’s a memorable character and an excellent performance, and Josh Brolin didn’t entirely understand him at first. That’s what we learn in this exclusive clip from Sicario, in which Brolin takes you inside a character whose attitude seems to be completely at odds with his beliefs. This clip is part of the special features on the home video release of Denis Villeneuve’s film, arrives on Digital HD on Tuesday, December 22 and on Blu-ray and DVD on January 5, 2016.
