Molly Smith, co-founder of Black Label Media, and her twin partners Trent and Thad Luckinbil recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter about Sicario possible sequel, check it out:!
What is the status of Sicario 2? Happening or not happening?
SMITH: We’re in full development with the studio. I just got a draft [of a script from writer Taylor Sheridan], and we’re really excited.
THAD: We’ve circulated it to the reps, and everybody [from the cast of the original is] on board.
TRENT: Taylor’s a really great world-builder. He’s got that kind of modern Western voice, which is in vogue right now. And he did it again [with the sequel]. It’s a great big world. We can’t reveal the plot, but you’ll see [Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin] all come back. You have such a great character with Benicio, who was as dark as he was and still so loved. That character resonates so well with audiences. People want to know what happened to him, so it’s a perfect foray for us to explore. Obviously we would love it if Denis could [direct]. He’s a busy man, but he’s certainly part of the process with us right now.
