‘Sicario’ Sequel ‘Soldado’ Begins Production Next Month In New Mexico
Sicario‘s sequel Soldado has been quite an anticipated project, as production is set to begin soon.
Project Casting has learned production is set to begin on November 8th and EG Casting is looking for young male actors for a role. The shoot is taking place in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
EG Casting is looking for African American kid actors between the ages of 14 to 16 to work on the SICARIO 2, also known as Soldado. Filming will take place on November 8th in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Soldado stars Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin with screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water) also returning. Denis Villeneuve will stay-on as a producer, while Italian director Stefano Sollima will takeover the sequel.
Emily Blunt will not be reprising her role in this installment, but filmmakers have left the door open for her to return in a third movie.
A follow-up to the 2015 film, ‘Sicario’, which centers around the escalating war against drugs along the border of the United States and Mexico.
There’s been chatter the sequel could explore the ties between terrorists and the cartels.
The timing of Soldado‘s shoot explains why Benicio Del Toro had to pass on the lead role in Shane Black’s The Predator, which might go to Boyd Holbrook (Logan, Morgan, Narcos, Gone Girl) instead.
