A sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s incredible cartel thriller Sicario is in “full development,” according to film’s producers. Not only that, but Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin are all “on board” to return.

S has once again been tagged to write the film. However, with Denis Villeneuve attached to helm Story Of Your Life and Blade Runner 2, it’s unlikely to return as director.

Said Black Label Media co-founder Trent Luckinbill in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “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.”
