Sicario perhaps isn’t the most obvious candidate for a sequel, especially as director Denis Villeneuve has since moved onto the likes of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049. However, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell Or High Water) has returned to pen the screenplay, with Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah) stepping into the director’s chair.
Here’s the brief synopsis: ‘In Sicario 2: Soldado, the drug war on the US – Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) reteams with the mercurial Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro).’
The movie is due in cinemas next summer. Take a look at the first trailer for the film below.
