'Sicario' Sequel 'Soldado' Adds Manuel Garcia-Rulfo
Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has joined Soldado, the sequel to 2015's hit that starred Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt, who also starred, will not be back for the follow-up. Stefano Sollima is directing for Lionsgate and Black Label Media.
Alejandro Gillick, the shadowy man from the first film played superbly by del Toro, will be back, alongside CIA agent Matt Graver (Brolin) in their ongoing mission to take down the drug cartel bosses. Garcia Rulfo will play Gallo, a dangerous and sadistic kingpin.
Garcia-Rulfo was last seen in Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven.
