I had no idea that they were going to be making a sequel to Denis Villeneuve‘s atmospheric and dense hitman thriller Sicario, starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.
I’ll admit that Sicario sort of took me surprise and left me with all sorts of reactions to the film, but I did enjoy its slow-burn and brooding approach.
Apparently Blunt and Villeneuve are off the sequel, which is titled Soldado.
French director Stefano Sollima will be taking over and the film is set to start shooting very soon. It’s apparently going to take place right after the events of the first film and possibly explore those creepy tunnels some more.
I’m not sure how I feel about a sequel without its original director and co-star, but I’ll see it if only to support Del Toro getting his own bad ass low-key hitman franchise.
