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.
Check out the clip, learn more about the film, and check out Sicario when it hits home video!
George Clooney’s next directorial effort is putting together quite the cast. Per Deadline, Clooney is in talks with Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Josh Brolin to lead his next film, Suburbicon. The 1950s-set noir drama boasts a script by Joel and Ethan Coen, who with this, Unbroken, and Bridge of Spies have carved out a new side-career as screenwriters for other people’s projects.
While the film is not yet set up at a studio, Sony Pictures is apparently the frontrunner to distribute what will surely be a star-studded affair. But that’s not all! Clooney has secured Oscar-winner Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood,Nightcrawler) as his director of photography, ensuring that this will be immaculately photographed as well.
While little is known about the plot at the moment,Suburbicon is said to be in the vein of the Coens’ Blood Simple. Filming is set to get underway next October once the schedules for all involved clear, but this is shaping up to be one hell of a promising feature.
That said, there’s certainly reason to pause. Clooney’s last directorial effort, The Monuments Men, was a star-studded affair with a promising premise, but in execution was a bland disappointment. Some may feel this is a warning sign to not get excited about Suburbicon, but I think it actually makes the film more interesting. Clooney was candid about the disappointment of Monuments Men, and now he’s got something to prove—with a Coen Brothers script, Robert Elswit, and a stellar cast in tow. It’s possible he’s itching to fully expand the directorial talents he’s shown shades of in previous films, and I’m mighty curious to see how he approaches this material.
Clooney and Damon, of course, go way back, and the actor just recently worked opposite Brolin on the Coen Brothers’ next film Hail, Caesar!
