Sicario 3: Sicario is an action thriller film, which was released in 2015. The story revolves around the journey of an FBI agent Kate Mercer, sent on a mission to take down the leader of a Mexican drug cartel. The word Sicario means ‘Hitman’ in Spanish. The universe set in ‘Sicario’ is bleak yet realistic. The first part of the movie Sicario was released in 2015 and received praises from critics and the audience. Although it was critical acclaim and economic success, there was little in Sicario’s premise that suggested that the film will turn into a franchise.
Nevertheless, the second film in the franchise titled ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’ hit the theatres in 2018. Denis Villeneuve and Stefano Sollima directed the first and second parts of the film, respectively. ‘Soldado’ didn’t fare very well at the box office, but it wasn’t a disaster either. Of course, it is always challenging to match its predecessor’s brilliance, but ‘Soldado’ did a good job. With over three years since the release of the second movie, fans are now looking forward to Sicario 3.
So, will there be Sicario 3? Will Emily Blunt Return As Kate Mercer? Read On To Know All The Details-
Is It Renewed? Know Production Status
The creators hinted at the possibility of Sicario 3 even prior to the release of the second film. Black Label Media confirmed that there would be a third film in the franchise titled Sicario: Capos. However, there is no information about when the movie will hit the theatres yet. Although according to reports, the filmmakers are currently working on a shooting schedule for the movies’ cast.
Returning Cast For Sicario 3
As of now, there has been no confirmation about who are the returning cast members for Sicario 3. However, according to producer Molly Smith, Black Label intends to bring del Toro back for an appearance. ‘Soldado’ comes to a close with the potential of Alejandro’s reappearance.
As a result, Benicio del Toro will likely reprise his role in the film. Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Donovan will also return in their characters for the upcoming movie. Given the box office performance of the second film, it also looks pretty probable that Emily Blunt will return as Kate in Sicario 3. There are reports that creators are trying to get Emily on board for the upcoming film.
What Will Be The Storyline Of Sicario 3?
The ending of ‘Soldado’ offered plenty of room for a third film. ‘Soldado’ finished on such a gripping thread and the following one should seek to tie it up. Even though they all tend to stay as separate movies.
The plot would most likely pick up where Sicario 2 left off. Alejandro survived a bullet from a young gang member who was forced to shoot him. After a year of horrific events, Alejandro confronted Miguel at the end of ‘Soldado.’ He confirmed to Miguel that he wanted to be a Soldado by repeating himself.
Therefore, the third film would be about Alejandro’s relationship with Miguel, as the master-apprentice equation which might make up for a fascinating plot. The film will be titled Sicario: Capos, which roughly translates to “bosses,” indicating that Alejandro and Matt will encounter the fiercest drug lords yet.
Sicario 3: Release Date
As per the reports, the film will likely enter the production stage later this year or early 2022. Thus, based on everything we know so far, it is safe to say that Sicario 3 will not hit the theatres anytime before 2023. Given the divided feedback to the second film, the studio will be moving carefully while making the third movie.
