SICARIO if you missed it, I recommend you should watch it as soon as you can. It was one of the best thrillers I have ever seen. Now, Screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, who wrote the first movie and the sequel, spoke with Collider about the new script and how it compares to the original, and he promises some big things in the process:
“Lionsgate understood that they bought something that was a spec (on the original Sicario). So there was a certain amount of latitude they had to give me (on Sicario 2). What usually would be a long meeting about what’s this character about, what’s his arc—we didn’t have that. They trusted me to just go do it, and with Sicario, which I’m really proud of, it really approaches some difficult subjects. I didn’t want to demean that with the second one. So I really wrote something I double dared them to actually make. Ten times more unsentimental, more vicious and really reflective…It’s funny, a lot of people think Sicario’s about the drug war and the cartels. It’s not. It’s a movie about American policy and the way that we police and (Sicario 2) is that on steroids.”
Soldado will feature returning actors Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin but won’t feature original star Emily Blunt.
With ten time more brutal Soldado is going to be way more action-packed than Sicario was, with new director Stefano Sollima saying “it’s got an incredible amount of huge action sequences in there,” It will be one awesome movie to watch!
