Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin are keen to return for 'Sicario 3'.
Producers Molly Smith and Thad Luckinbill have revealed that they are planning to bring the trio back for the third movie in the action franchise, even though Blunt's FBI Special Agent Kate Macer did not feature in the 2018 sequel 'Sicario: Day of the Soldado'.
Speaking to Collider, Smith said: "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."
Brolin had hinted last year that a third movie could be made after suggesting that the project had been "written and rewritten".
The 55-year-old star – who played CIA officer Matt Graver in the first two movies – told The Hollywood Reporter: "I just don't know when we'll do it. We may be 80. But it's very much at the forefront of all of our minds. It's been written and it's been rewritten. So it's out there.
"We think it deserves a third one if we can make it in the way that we want to make it. So don't give up!"
