sicario sequel

Filming wraps on the Sicario sequel, titled Soldado, in a couple of days in Mexico City. Just the other day, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) gave an update on the project, saying, “If Sicario is a film about the militarization of police and that blending over, this is removing the policing aspect from it.” Soldado deals heavily with immigration, so Sheridan and producer Basil Iwanyk (John Wick: Chapter Two) believe the sequel is relevant in more than a few ways. Iwanyk is also confident the sequel is bigger, has more “bells and whistles,” and digs deeper into the characters. Below, learn more about the Sicario sequel. Read More »

sicario sequel director

Sicario isn’t the kind of film that demands a sequel, but there’s no denying the horrifying allure of the world it depicts. Even when you’re disgusted by what’s on screen, you simply cannot look away. You’re drawn into the nightmare. The story of America’s war on drugs, and the story of how the drug trade has terrorized and decimated entire communities in Mexico, is bigger than a single movie.

So there’s plenty of material for a Sicario sequel to dive into and now that sequel has a title: Soldado, the Spanish word for soldier. It also has a new director, since Sicario‘s Denis Villeneuve has officially moved on.
