Emily Blunt Will Not Return for 'Sicario' Sequel, 'Soldado'

Emily Blunt is not going to star in the upcoming movie Soldado, a sequel to her hit movie Sicario, but it’s not by her choice.

Taylor Sheridan, the screenwriter of the movie, is explaining why her character will not return for the sequel.

“That was my decision, and at some point I’m going to have to talk to her about it,” he told TheWrap. “Her arc was complete … I couldn’t figure out a way to write a character that would do her talent justice.”

“Look what she went through. It was a difficult role,” Taylor added. Here I write this lead character and then I use her as a surrogate for the audience. I make her completely passive against her own will so the audience feels the same impotence that a lot of law enforcement officers feel, I drag her through hell, and betray her in the end. It was an arduous journey for the character, and for Emily. That character had arc.”

Emily was nominated for several Best Actress prizes at various film critics awards for her work in the movie. The film itself received three Academy Award nominations in the creative categories.

“What do you do next? She moves to some little town and becomes a sheriff and then gets kidnapped and then we have Taken?” the screenwriter said. “I had to tell the story that was true to this role, and I didn’t feel like I could create something with that character that would further that world that would do Emily’s character justice. That said, there could be room for Kate somewhere else down the road.”

    nooo!!! what a BS!she should cpmeback and team up with them again. this is with producers who did not want a female lead in Sicario, but Denis have to fought for her. then when he left the sequel they pushed out the charater. I know thrre’s Catherine Keener, but really. a plot with Alejandro arc without Kate… i mean there’s a connection there that would be amazing to be explored. Shame this screewriter and bs explanations to not have Emily. I mean, compare with Taken really says a lot about it. plus, why not explore more her charater too? if in Sicario she was more than a observer. she would back more strong and straightforward. I loved Alejandro. but i hope this movie flop.
