‘Sicario’ Sequel Lands A Title And Director, But Loses Emily Blunt

Lionsgate and Black Label Media are reportedly nearing a deal for “Gomorrah” and “Suburra” director Stefano Sollima to helm the sequel to the 2015 crime thriller “Sicario.”

Deadline confirms that the followup, called “Soldado,” centers on Alejandro Gillick, the enigmatic “consultant” played in the original by Benicio Del Toro. While Emily Blunt won’t return, Josh Brolin will reprise his role as CIA Agent Matt Graver, who’ll reteam with Del Toro’s character to monitor what — and who — is being smuggled across the U.S./Mexico border through tunnels.

Produced for just $30 million, “Sicario” grossed $84 million worldwide, and earned three Academy Award nominations. The film also sparked controversy with its depiction of Juarez, Mexico.

Like “Sicario,” “Soldado” is written by Taylor Sheridan. Production is targeted to begin sometime this fall.

    Benico and Brolin coming back is I need. Emily Blunt did ok in the first one, but contribute much except stand there and get verbally and physically abused.

    Although im not bothered about her returning, Blunt was excellent in the first film, there's a lot more going on there than just her having to stand there.

    I really don't think there's many other actresses around at the moment who could have pulled that role off.

    I aint knockin her, she did a fine job, but there was a lot of scene stealers. Benicio, Brolin, Bernthal.

    Del toro not even being nominated (along with her) was a joke.

    The way the first film ended.. with her at her flat it makes sense that she wouldn't be returning due to the murk of Mexico and drug dealing

    I think she's even expecting a child in real life; I saw pics of her in the papers

    I Feel Some Type of Way That Director From Sicario Isn't Returning I liked What He Did With The Material I Also Highly Enjoyed Prisoners Which Will Go Down As A Cult Classic...Gomorrah Was Dope So I'm Sure Soldado Is Good Maybe Even Better Hands...Brolin And Del Torro Are Back And That A First Day Watch For Me As Well On Those Names Alone...Emily Blount Isn't A Huge Loss IMO Shes Talented But Making This Face Was The Extent Of Acting For Most Of The Film:

    You should check out one of his previous films 'Incendies', if you don't mind subtitles..Still his best film for me, really stuck under the skin for a long time.
