Sicario, a smash hit drama from Denis Villeneuve, seems to come out of nowhere, but it has already inspired two sequels, one of which has not yet been made public. The 2015 movie “The Originals” centres on an idealistic FBI agent (the seductive Emily Blunt) who is hired by a government task team to help in the escalating drug battle along the border between the United States and Mexico. Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the film’s gritty 2018 prequel, continues to follow the drug battle on the border, which has intensified as a result of the cartels’ start of smuggling terrorists across the border with the United States. Federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) rejoins forces with the covert Alejandro to combat the battle (Benicio del Toro). Will they team up once more in the third volume?
The first movie received positive reviews, did well at the box office, and received three Academy Award nominations. Though it most definitely wasn’t a commercial failure, the second instalment received fewer favourable reviews from critics overall. It’s still a go for the third production, which would wrap out what the producers have dubbed a “anthology trilogy.”
“We made the second one because we loved it so much and because we were so happy that people liked the first one. We are most likely the movie’s biggest fans. And that feeling is back. Of course, we kind of leave off a little teaser at the end even more than the first one. Yeah. And we would really like to kind of see it because, you know, Taylor had it on his mind all the time, and we thought, “God, that would be fantastic if we could go there.” I believe we should do that right away. The second one, in my opinion, more than met my expectations.”
Both in front of and behind the camera, there have been rumours about who will return for Sicario: Capos, the third movie’s rumoured title. Here is a closer examination of everything we currently know.
As of July 2022 revision by Liz Young: You’ll be pleased to know that we’ve updated this post with more information regarding Sicario 3, including confirmation of the movie’s progress, if you’re looking for more information.
Sicario 3: The Plot
Producer Trent Luckinbill confirmed there will be a Sicario 3 before Day Of The Soldado’s release. The plot would probably continue from the conclusion of Sicario 2, in which Alejandro (del Toro) managed to survive a shooting from young gang member Miguel (Elijah Rodriguez), who was compelled to shoot him. The final scene occurs a year later and features Alejandro who has seemingly recovered recruiting Miguel, maybe setting up an apprentice relationship in the upcoming film.
A follow-up would also need to address Matt’s (Brolin’s) career consequences after he defied the harsh instructions of his superiors in Sicario 2 due to a rare expression of emotion. The word “bosses” in the title Sicario: Capos, which loosely translates to “bosses” in English, may refer to the strongest drug lords Matt and Alejandro have yet to deal with.
Sicario 3: The Cast
No final casting for Sicario 3 has been disclosed as of yet. Nevertheless, producer Molly Smith told Deadline that Black Label Media wants to bring del Toro back for another appearance. Again, nothing is set in stone, but Brolin and supporting performer Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice, Fargo Season 2) are anticipated to return for a third movie.
It seems like Blunt’s protagonist role is a must for a trilogy finale as well, and the new movie may benefit from a look at how she changed in the wake of the tragic events in the first movie. While Day of the Soldado earned a decent amount of favourable reviews, Blunt’s absence was felt strongly, and the movie is widely regarded as having a less compelling plot than the original. Although it’s difficult to say given Blunt’s hectic schedule, reports claim that the producers of the series are interested in bringing her back to the Sicario universe.
Sicario 3 Release Date
Black Label Media, who is behind the film’s production, has stated that Sicario: Capos will start shooting this year. As a result, it’s probable that we won’t see the finished product until the very latest, the end of 2022. The studio might be exercising extra caution when putting together the following instalment in light of the conflicting reviews of the second instalment.
Will Denis Villeneuve Return as Director?
For Sicario 3, might Denis Villeneuve take the helm once more? Producer Ed McDonnell claims Villeneuve would like to return. McDonnell told Empire that Villeneuve wished he had been available for Sicario 2. “Even the possibility of him returning for the third one, should there be one, was discussed. If I were available, I would start directing this movie tomorrow, he declared. But from the moment the script began to take shape, we were aware he would be in the middle of Blade Runner.”
Stefano Sollima, the director of Sicario 2, made it clear that he would not return to direct a third chapter back in 2018. At the time, he told Variety that “every film in these series needs to be a standalone that continues in the same environment.” “I’d love to watch a new episode of Sicario, but it ought to be made by a different director with a distinct aesthetic. The same director’s work shouldn’t be shown in more than one movie. Then it would resemble an actual franchise too closely.”
Fans had anticipation that Sicario 3 will be released soon after Brolin said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in May that it had “been written and reworked.” In a sign that he and the rest of the group are fully on board, the actor even joked that “we may be 80” when they finally complete the movie.
