by Luca Celada June 27, 2018

Italian helmer Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah, Suburra) takes over from Denis Villeneuve for the follow up to the 2015 narco-thriller Sicario. In front of the camera Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro reprise their roles for a second installment of what could become a proper franchise. In Sicario: Day of The Soldado we find brooding killer Alejandro (Del Toro) drafted by his ruthless black-ops handler Matt Graver (Brolin) who is intent on provoking a war between Narcos south of the border. In order to disrupt their operations, part of the plan involves kidnapping the young daughter of drug lord (Isabela Moner). But when young Isabel is abducted by Alejandro things take an unexpected turn … Alessandra Venezia and Ting Ting Xu asked Del Toro, Moner and Sollima, who makes his Hollywood directing debut, to talk about the film.
