Lionsgate has released a new clip from Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners, Enemy) upcoming crime thriller Sicario. The film, loosely based on my life, stars Full Metal Bitch as Kate Macer, an idealistic FBI agent who is enlisted by a government official to aid in a joint task force tracking down an anonymous drug lord. I’m really looking forward to seeing this next week at TIFF.
Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Victor Garber, Jeffrey Donovan, and Jon Bernthal also star. Sicario hits theaters on September 25th. In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent [Emily Blunt] is enlisted by an elite government task force official [Josh Brolin] to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past [Benicio Del Toro], the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.
