Where the original had us primarily follow Emily Blunt’s Kate Macer, the sequel will have us follow Benicio Del Toro’s Alejandro Gallic and Josh Brolin’s CIA Agent Matt Graver, who in Sicario were established as men hellbent on hunting down cartel kingpins, no matter what.
Isabela Moner (whose credits include 100 Things To Do Before High School and Transformers: The Last Knight) will be playing the role of the stubborn daughter of the drug cartel leader that becomes the centre of Matt and Alejandro’s undercover operation to provoke a war that her father will surely lose. Moner will be joining a cast that includes Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and Catherine Keener.
Stefano Sollima (the Gomorrah television series) is attached to direct the film, with the sequel being produced by Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, Black Label Media’s Molly Smith, Thad and Trent Luckinbill and Edward McDonnell.
There is no cinematic release date for Soldado.
