Yet to arrive on these shores, Suburra is a multi-strand Italian thriller replete with corruption, crime and gloss. It’s compelling stuff and, with strong work on the TV adaptation of Gomarra also to his name, marks Sollima out as a natural fit for the terrain.
Sicario, of course, married up Emily Blunt’s FBI agent, Josh Brolin’s shady CIA operative and Benicio Del Toro’s mysterious Alejandro Gillick in an uncomfortable alliance against a Mexican cartel. Principles, morality and their corrosion in the face of tonnes of guns, money and white powder are likely to figure strongly again as themes in Soldado. Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan has again written the script.
Del Toro’s Gillick and Brolin’s Matt Graver will be the focus of the sequel, with Blunt's Kate Macer not returning. Sicario director Denis Villeneuve, of course, is off on another sequel altogether... Blade Runner.
