A third Sicario film is already being discussed

Benicio Del Toro Josh Brolin Sicario sequel

Like many of you, I was a big fan of Denis Villeneuve's SICARIO, but then word came out that a sequel to SICARIO was already in the works and would follow Benicio Del Toro's character. It seemed like an odd move as SICARIO wasn't exactly a film which demanded a sequel, but the project quickly moved forward when Stefano Sollima signed on to direct it. Called SOLDADO, the new film will follow Benicio Del Toro's Alejandro Gillick and Josh Brolin's CIA agent Matt Graver as they "concern themselves with what is being smuggled across the border between Mexico and the U.S. in the tunnels used to move drugs and illegal immigrants." Now, according to Sollima, that sequel will actually serve as the second installment of a three-part anthology.

While speaking with The Independent, Sollima announced that the idea is to make an anthology trilogy set in the same world using some of the same core actors. Now that I've had time to warm up to the idea of a sequel, it certainly seems like an interesting concept, but we'll have to see how SOLDADO turns out. Regarding the sequel, Sollima said:

It's not a real sequel, it's absolutely a standalone movie - a completely different story with just two of the characters that you met in Sicario. The reason that I love [Soldado] is because it's not exactly a sequel; it's something you can catch and enjoy even if you haven't watched the first one.

Adding that "the antagonists are now absolutely the main characters," Sollima revealed how different SOLDADO will be from SICARIO.

I loved Sicario. I feel the movie was quite similar to my approach so, to me, I'm just shooting another movie. Soldado will be much more cinematic than Sicario was; it's got an incredible amount of huge action sequences in there. It will be a different journey in the same world. Even the theme is different - it's not drug dealing, it's more on immigration.

What are your thoughts on SICARIO becoming a trilogy?

No reason for more of these. The first one was fine, but not everything needs a sequel. I have no desire to see anything more regarding these characters. I believe the story they told was just fine and needs no more extra stuff.

What made Sicario work was its claustrophobic and anxiety inducing unpredictability. Making a sequel more cinematic with huge action set pieces seems to completely overlook why the first movie was so great, but perhaps this could be like Alien and Aliens were theyre meant to have completely different looks and feels.

"Soldado will be much more cinematic than Sicario was"

Excuse me? Sicario was a masterpiece - Mr. Stefano Sollima made a fantastic TV show but has yet to prove that he can deliver a film as good as Sicario! Pride comes before a fall...

hmmmm what i liked about the first one was that the action scenes were subtle and subdued. Not this big smorgasbog.
