Sicario sequel confirmed, detailed by Black Label execs

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Molly Smith, Trent and Thad Luckinbill of Black Label Media confirmed that development of the sequel to the 2015 thriller is well underway with the original cast set to return.

According to Smith, ” I just got a draft [of a script from writer Taylor Sheridan], and we’re really excited.”

“We can’t reveal the plot, but you’ll see [Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin] all come back” said Trent.

Trent added that while original Sicario director Denis Villeneuve is “certainly a part of the process”, he’s not necessarily attached to direct at this stage.

Denis Villeneuve is currently set to direct the upcoming Blade Runner sequel.

No word yet on when the film will hit cinemas.
