Sicario 3: Capos is an upcoming Spanish thriller movie directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Taylor Sheridan.
The first part was also directed by Denis Villeneuve, written by Taylor Sheridan, and produced under Black Label Media with Thunder Road Pictures while Stefano Sollima replaced Denis as the director in the second part keeping all the crew same.
Now, Denis is available once again and will continue to direct the third part of the movie series. Based on the drug war at US Mexico border, the film series follows an attempt by the United States government to incite the conflict among cartels.
Will there be a Sicario 3?
There was a time when it seemed that Sicario 3 would definitely happen as it was confirmed by the film’s producer Trent Luckinbill himself in an exclusive interview with Screenrant. He said that audiences can expect to see a sequel to Sicario 2 in the future.
The producer also revealed that the story will continue the drug war at the US Mexican border where cartels have begun trafficking of terrorists along with drugs.
Moreover, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan conceived plans for a third Sicario movie to round out the trilogy but that was happening in 2018 when there was no Yellowstone and Tulsa King.
What is the future of Sicario franchise?
Now, Sheridan is busy in writing the scripts for his original Paramount+ creation and considering the popularity of Yellowstone, the creator is working on prequels and sequels so we don’t think the man has plans of bringing another Sicario film.
Josh Brolin has fueled our concerns by saying that bringing the third movie to life has been challenging. It’s been five years since the movie was announced to be in development.
Why hasn’t it happened till now? How long can you wait, the actor has said in a recent interview with Variety in March 2023.
Even though, Brolin’s update seem to be disappointing for fans, this doesn’t reflect the film’s future because the film industry is unpredictable as stock market. Who knew, a Moana sequel will be announced after eight years.
When is Sicario 3 coming out?
Sicario 3 has been stuck in the production hell since 2018 and there’s no update on its progress.
Some reports claim that the filming has been ongoing but Brolin has revealed the truth by saying that making a third Sicario movie will be hard as many years have been passed.
First Sicario movie come out in 2015 as an action thriller movie and made more than $85 Million on box office against a budget of $30 Million. That inspired the producers to release a sequel titled Day of the Soldado in 2018.
The second film also performed well on box office as well as Netflix and this is the reason why a third movie is in progress. Even though, it didn’t perform as well as the first one, still creators are planning to release a new film for the happiness of fans like Edge of Tomorrow 2 on Netflix.
However, no specific release date has been given by Lionsgate yet but if the filming gets completed before the end of 2023 then we can expect Sicario 3 to be released around summer 2024.

Cast of Sicario 3
Most of all the main characters will return to reprise their roles in the third installment like Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Donovan, and Emily Brunt with some new characters. Molly Smith has confirmed that Beinicio del Toro might return for his role.
Since, nothing has been finalized, it will be hard to predict the returning of recurring characters. Moreover, Emily Brunt is already on a tight schedule. Will she become available for this part?
Villeneuve is returning as the film director as he is now free. He was also scheduled to direct the second film but his schedule was too busy at that time.
On the other side, second film director Stefano has already confirmed that he wouldn’t return for any other movie after directing the second movie.
Sicario 3 Trailer
Since the filmmakers haven’t posted any update regarding the arrival of upcoming part of Sicario, there’s no trailer or teaser available. However, you can enjoy this intense scene.
What will happen in Sicario 3?
This film will pickup the story right after season 2 ended, the time when Alejando survived a gunshot fired by a young gang member Miguel.
It will show the true character of Matt who can change his behavior just after a nervous breakdown, Matt can even disobey his senior orders in the stream of emotions.
The upcoming film is coming with the title Capos means bosses. That means we will be able to see some new drug bosses which have never revealed their identities before.
Since the same director is returning to direct the film, we can expect to see intense and suspenseful moments in Sicario 3. It would be interesting to see how Matt and Alejandro handle those new challenges and what sacrifices they will make in order to succeed.
