Sicario 2 Will Be ‘Standalone'; Sicario 3 Already Planned
Going by the tile of Soldado (the Spanish word for “soldier”), the film has Stefano Sollima attached to direct and Taylor Sheridan back to pen the sequel, after Villeneuve pulled out due to his commitment to the Blade Runner sequel, followed by Green Room‘s Jeremy Saulnier’s swift departure when he couldn’t work with the film’s production schedule.
Sollima revealed during a recent interview with The Independent how the follow-up to Sicario will be a different beast altogether:
Clearly, the director is referring to the two dangerous figures from the first film – Brolin’s CIA agent Matt Graves and del Toro’s cartel go-between/hitman Alejandro Gillick – who will both reprise their roles in the sequel, rather than Blunt’s character. It’s refreshing to hear that the next instalment won’t simply be a retreading of the first movie with the same characters, but appears to be a notable progression within that film’s deadly, drug-dealing world.“It’s absolutely a standalone movie – a completely different story with just two of the characters that you met in Sicario. It’s not a real sequel. The antagonists are now absolutely the main characters.”
Buena noticia, la primera estuvo muy buena.
