Sicario Sequel Planned with Benecio Del Toro as Lead
Lionsgate has announced that they are planning on releasing a sequel to Sicario, their new film that was in limited released on September 18. The film will focus on Benicio Del Toro's hitman character.

Patrick Wachsberger, co-chair of the studio's motion picture group, said, "Before the release of this movie, I was talking to Denis and I said what happened to this character? Where is Benicio going?" He added, "This movie has multiple Oscar potential - best movie, best director, best cinematography, best music, and, of course, the actors. All of the characters feel real."

The film has pulled in an impressive $410,288 last weekend from just six theaters.  It will continue to roll out at a conservative pace, until going nationwide on October 2.
