Jeffrey Donovan Gives Details on 'Sicario' Sequel, 'Soldado'
Speaking with collider, actor Jeffrey Donovan gave some brief hints at what we can expect from the upcoming sequel to Sicario, titled Soldado.
"I know I was in it, but as a fan of Sicario, I can’t believe they’re making another one, which is so awesome. And I’m in it, which is even more awesome. I thought Sicario was one of the best films, in the last five years, that I’ve seen. I really believe that. I was just lucky to be in a small portion of it.
"The story picks up with the same male characters that were in Sicario, which was Josh [Brolin] and Benicio [Del Toro]. Emily Blunt’s character is not in it, but my character, Forsing, is also brought back. It focuses on these three characters now, going down into Mexico to basically start a war, on purpose, between the rival Mexican cartels. There’s a bigger reason for it, but that’s the beginning of the movie."
He calls the film "more of a standalone spinoff" rather than a direct sequel. "It’s not a sequel or a prequel. It really is yet another examination told from this male point of view, rather than from a female point of view. It’s pretty cool."
