The “Sicario” film series has taken spectators on a riveting and emotional journey into the world of drug cartels, law enforcement, and moral uncertainty. The original film, released in 2015, depicts an idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) who is recruited by a government task team to help in the expanding drug battle along the US-Mexico border.
The film’s hard-hitting 2018 sequel, Sicario: Day of the Soldado, continues to follow the drug conflict on the border, which has worsened as the cartels have begun sending terrorists across the border. To battle the war, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) re-teams with the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio del Toro). Will they reconvene for the third installment?
With its intricate storytelling and heart-pounding action, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of a third installment. In this article, we delve into the latest updates and speculations surrounding the “Sicario 3” release date.
When Will Sicario 3 Be Released?
There is currently no release date for Sicario 3, but the project is still in the works, so we could see it in 2025. But don’t hold your breath because the film hasn’t yet begun production.
In reality, the chances of a Sicario 3 aren’t looking good. We say this despite the fact that Taylor Sheridan is said to be working on the script and that a title leak in 2021 revealed that the upcoming picture was called Sicario: Capos. But there hasn’t been any news in years, and even Josh Brolin isn’t sure if the film will ever be released in theaters.
In March 2023, Brolin told Variety, “Sicario 3, we’ve been trying to get that right and get that going, but why hasn’t it happened?” How long can you hold out? Even though the two made money, it was a difficult film to make, and people are still inquiring about it.”
So, that doesn’t look good. However, we remain optimistic that next year will bring further details and maybe a confirmation of a 2025 release date. (Keep your fingers crossed!)
Who Will Be in the Cast of Sicario 3?
It goes without saying that Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro will reprise their roles as Matt Graver and Alejandro Gillick in Sicario 3.
However, the rest of the probable actor roster for the future film is now a bit hazy. At the end of the last film, it appeared that Miguel Hernandez, played by Elijah Rodriguez, would have a sequel. As a result, he may appear in the sequel.
Fans would definitely love to see Emily Blunt’s Kate Macer return to the big screen, as her absence in the second film was greatly felt by moviegoers. However, Blunt has not yet announced a comeback to the franchise. Similarly, Isabela Moner, who played Isabel Reyes in Sicario: Day of the Soldado, was a star, and fans want to see her return. We’ll keep you updated as additional information becomes available!
What Will Happen in Sicario 3?
The plot description for Sicario 3 has yet to be disclosed, however, based on the events of the last film in the franchise, it appears that the next chapter in the story will follow Miguel Hernandez’s apprenticeship.
We saw Alejandro Gillick approach Miguel Hernandez at the end of Sicario: Day of the Soldado and hint at mentoring the young gang member. In that situation, Sicario 3 will follow the two as they work their way up the cartel’s leadership structure.
The title of the film, Sicario: Capos, indicates that our heroes will be going after the big dogs of the criminal organization this time. The days of dealing with Soldados (soldiers) are over. Capos are the cartel’s bosses, so expect more action and violent shootouts.
Is There Any Trailer for Sicario 3?
Sicario 3 has been in development for years, but there is no trailer because the film has not yet begun production. For now, you can watch the trailer for season 2 below:
The possibility of “Sicario 3” is an exciting prospect for fans of the series who have been captivated by its intense storytelling and exploration of complex moral dilemmas. While details remain shrouded in mystery, the anticipation for the next chapter continues to build. As enthusiasts await official announcements and updates, the “Sicario” series remains a powerful and memorable cinematic experience.
