The core trio of stars from the first “Sicario” film are being sought to return for the upcoming third entry.

The original Denis Villeneuve-directed 2015 film starred Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro in the three lead roles whilst Daniel Kaluuya and Jeffrey Donovan had supporting parts.

del Toro and Brolin both returned for the second film “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” but Blunt sat out that entry. That doesn’t appear to be the case for the next one.

Last month came the news a third film was in development with writing having begun before the writer’s strike and now continuing that said strike is over.

Speaking with Collider this week about new Netflix film “Reptile,” producers Molly Smith and Trent Luckinbill revealed that the plan is to get the main trio back together:

“Our idea is to get the cast back together with Benicio, Emily, and Josh, and we’ve got a great story to tell…Benicio, by nature of just working with us most recently, has been probably the closest to it at the moment.

But we’re keeping all the talent informed. They’ve stayed close to it. Like Trent said, the strike has just slowed us down a bit on this last draft, but I think everybody is very excited.

Everyone sort of knows the framework of the story and is very excited to, hopefully, get our shooting draft in order very soon.”

A big issue will be the shooting schedules of its stars post-actor’s strike which will be difficult to pull together as all, especially Blunt, are in high demand.
